The main focus of the meeting was to discuss the overview of development and the umbrellas of EHF Solidarity
and Sustainability

The Committee broke into 3 working groups and EHF’s Head of National Association Development, Education and Funding, Tom Pedersen Smith reported that “The outcome for the meeting was to enhance a clear strategic overview of development and the umbrellas of EHF Solidarity and EHF Sustainability. These were explained by the EHF and then evaluated by the Committee members representing each region of the EHF membership. The committee talked through in subgroups the upcoming launch of a new small grants funding scheme that will be made available to national associations by the EHF. The EHF is also looking at a further grant system in future years to enhance and benefit more member National Associations and this was also explored by the committee members.”
