Support agreements

With the dual role of public carriers and service companies, European railway companies find themselves in direct contact with the social situation of the places where they develop their activity. Railway stations are not islands in the sea. They are rather parts of complex urban realities, in which a number of stakeholders are involved: Public Authorities, businesses, NGO's, just to identify major categories.

Members of "Gare Européenne et Solidarité" are well aware that tackling social exclusion in railway areas is beyond their unique responsibility. Therefore they wish to associate institutional and associative players with their struggle against those issues.

That is why official support from representatives of local institutions and local or European-based associations for the initiatives developed by the members of "Gare Européenne et Solidarité" seems relevant in order to increase the effectiveness and the visibility of actions to combat extreme social exclusion. Each company member of the network can formalise Support Agreements with the partners they deem necessary to associate in order to facilitate operational support for the implementation of societal mechanisms.

Support Agreements have been signed by the following:

FEANTSA – European Federation of National Organisations Working with the Homeless
Aux captifs la libération
Comunità di Sant’Egidio
Centro Astalli
Fundación de los Ferrocarriles Españoles
Roma Capitale
UIC – International Union of Railways
Ville de Paris
Europe Consulting ONLUS
