Meeting with regional organisers of UNITE


Aims and objectives


The aim of EAPN UK is to influence the development and implementation of EU level policies that have an impact on poverty in the UK. In order to achieve this aim a number of objectives will be pursued:

  • Developing a network of civil society organisations and groups that have an interest in European social policy issues and anti-poverty work in order to feed UK experience into EU policy processes;
  • Share good practice of what works in tackling poverty across Europe with civil society organisations in the UK;
  • Developing relationships with policy makers and politicians at the UK and devolved administration levels that have a responsibility for anti-poverty policy, EU social policy issues and European funding issues;
  • To provide opportunities to feed in the experience of people in poverty into relevant European policy processes;
  • To provide information and awareness raising work on European social policy issues and their relevance for the UK
