New complaint registered concerning Belgium

The complaint was registered on 17 December 2021. It relates to Articles 11 (the right to protection of health), 16 (the right of the family to social, legal and economic protection), 30 (the right to protection against poverty and social exclusion), 19§4.c (the right of migrant workers and their families to protection and assistance), 17 (the right of children and young persons to social, legal and economic protection) and E (non-discrimination) of the revised European Social Charter. The FEANTSA alleges that the Flemish housing policy does not sufficiently succeed in improving the difficult housing situation of many families and that this is particularly true for the most vulnerable residents such as homeless families with children, migrant workers and Travellers, in violation of the above-mentioned provisions of the Charter.
