Promoting access to decent long-term housing for vulnerable people, and combatting energy and water poverty.
The rising costs of housing, energy and water represent a real challenge for many people. Attentive to the needs of the most vulnerable, the King Baudouin Foundation endeavours to enable the homeless and poorly housed to have access to decent housing and it fights against energy and water poverty.
- we provide financial support to organisations in the sector that enable vulnerable people to get access to housing
- we develop and implement a strategy of social investment that focuses on housing for the homeless and single-parent families
- together with the Platform for fighting fuel poverty, which brings together all actors concerned by this problem, we develop recommendations and each year publish the Barometer of Energy and Water Poverty
- and we contribute to providing an inventory of the homeless and poorly housed with a view to attracting the attention of government bodies and citizens regarding the reality these people face and the measures to be undertaken.
