Euro banknotes are spread across a surface and there are two transparent ligthbulbs resting on the banknotes.

The Helpdesk project's workshop on using EU funds for social service projects for persons with disabilities will take place on 19 September.


In the framework of the Helpdesk project, the European Platform for Rehabilitation (EPR) is organising a series of online workshops on the use and access of EU social funds for social services projects for persons with disabilities. EPR is delighted to invite you to take part in this second online workshop planned for Tuesday, 19 September, 10:00-13:00.

To register for the workshop, please head to the event Google Form. Participants will be sent the agenda and adapted tools from the first workshop after registering.

About the workshop

This is the second of a series of 3 workshops organised by EPR as part of the Helpdesk project, which aims to make EU funds better accessible for providers of social services. The results of the workshops will feed into a Toolkit and Guidance for Managing Authorities on how they can use the ERDF and ESF+ funds in a more accessible and impactful way for social services including, services for people with disabilities.

This second online workshop will look at the adapted tools, templates and guidance developed in response to the feedback collected from the first workshop in the following 3 areas:

  1. Project Application Form and Call for Proposals
  2. Project Budget (e.g., the useof Simplified Cost Options)
  3. Project Reporting

In addition, the workshop will look at other areas that may impinge or support increased take up of EU funds for service providers of disabilities services including partnership and horizontal principles, selection and evaluation, quality, and communication, as well as follow-up and responsibility. Help EPR shape the workshop's agenda by specifying which of these processes is most pertinent to the disabilities sector when registering for the workshop.
