Flemish Network of Associations of People Experiencing Poverty - Belgium (EAPN - Flanders)

The Flemish Network of Associations of People Experiencing Poverty ("Vlaams Netwerk van Verenigingen waar Armen het Woord nemen") is a coalition of 60 grass root associations and a few local networks (city-level). The main objective of the Flemish Network is to eradicate poverty and social exclusion. In the member associations people experiencing poverty play a central role. They take the floor at all levels of the association, of the network and in actions to all kind of authorities (local, regional, national, European). In the member associations people experiencing poverty find a way to take their lives in their own hands and to put their experiences together in all domains of daily life. On that basis they discuss the difficulties they encounter and make propositions for change and improvement which they discuss with the relevant policy authorities.

The Flemish Network is a non governmental organisation (NGO) established on the basis of a Flemish degree (law) and is the official spokes channel of the Flemish government in every thing poverty concerns.
