EACEA has held an online Information Day session to let organisations learn more about the Volunteering Teams in High Priority Areas, under the European Solidarity Corps programme.
The 2021 Call for Volunteering Teams in High Priority Areas projects closes on October 5th 2021 at 5pm (Brussels time). The online presentation, for anyone who has missed it out, is available for consultation.
Volunteering Teams in High Priority Areas
Volunteering Teams in high priority areas are large scale, high impact projects supporting voluntary activities carried out by young people from at least two different countries coming together to express solidarity by implementing short-term interventions that address common European challenges in policy areas defined each year at EU level.
This year’s priority is focused on COVID-19 impact and recovery, particularly through supporting the health and social care systems with activities tackling prevention, promotion and support in the field of health; addressing major health challenges (i.e. life-threatening illnesses like cancer) and promoting health, healthy lifestyle, physical activity and well-being overall.
For the purpose of this call, applications for funding could:
- contribute to the improvement of health and well-being of vulnerable people, including persons affected by chronic or life-threatening diseases (e.g. cancer);
- contribute to building inclusive societies.
How To Apply
The 2021 Call is still open and your organisation can apply through the EACEA website.
Prior to application, it might be useful to go through the EACEA informative session, as such provides organisations with information on the proposals submission procedure in e-grant.
