SCDC & CHEX to be partners in European network for community development
Social groups facing exclusion are very different from country to country - from the urban poor of new immigrants in Western Europe to the extreme poverty of segregated Eastern-European Roma and other minorities in small rural settlements - but many of the problems they meet are similar.
SCDC has been awarded funding through the Grundtvig programme of the European Commission to take part in a network for community development with marginalised social groups. Other partners are the Hungarian Association for Community Development, Estrategies de Transformacio Comunitaria Sostenible (Barcelona) and the Association of Local Democracy Agencies, which is based in France and works in the Balkans and Caucasus.
