IFS Europe

Welcome to IFS Europe!

At the last International Federation of Settlements and Neighborhood Centers Board Meeting, members of the IFS Board of Directors agreed on the importance of building stronger connections within the larger global framework of the organization.

IFS Europe will work to connect European members of IFS, including members in Israel, on issues specific to our work and the current social problems we are facing as a community.
