At present, EAPN is a network of 31 national networks of voluntary organisations and grassroots groups and 13 European organisations. See our members’ page.
The membership of EAPN is involved in a variety of activities aimed at combating poverty and social exclusion including, education and training activities, service provision and activities aimed at the participation and empowerment of people experiencing poverty and social exclusion.
Together, the membership of EAPN aims to put the fight against poverty high on the agenda of the EU and to ensure cooperation at EU level aimed at the eradication of poverty and social exclusion.
Our work is carried out by our members, split into specific statutory entities and task forces. These groups feed into our European level work their national perspectives, individual expertise or the specific focus of the European organisation they are affiliated to.
EAPN has consultative status with the Council of Europe, and is a founding member of the Social Platform (Platform of European Social NGOs)
