*“Volunteering Teams in High Priority Areas” is a distinct project format that supports activities by volunteering teams with a specific focus on thematic priorities defined each year at EU level.

For 2021, applications for funding under this Action are expected to address the below policy priorities:

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 through protecting vulnerable groups as people with drug alcohol dependence, elderly and children, migrants, homeless etc. from COVID 19 impact and other diseases.

Additionally, to increase the quality and impact of the action, projects would integrate complementary activities to:

  • foster European cooperation to strengthen the capacity of the solidarity sector to tackle common European challenges, such as health crisis, protection of vulnerable groups through networking and exchanging experiences;
  • raise awareness about prevention through campaigns, promotion and information dissemination, public discussions in order to improve the general health of European populations.
