You can find on this page the list of European subsidies concerning social affairs.
European social policy is based on the Social Charter from 1961 and the Charter of Fundamental Social Rights of Workers from 1989 that set the following EU objectives as priorities: supporting employment, improving the working conditions, offering a good quality social welfare, encouraging social dialogue, training of human resources with a high employment and sustainable development, and fighting against exclusion.

The Commission launched its Social Agenda 2008-2010 for modernising Europe's social model under the revamped Lisbon Strategy for growth and jobs. The new agenda focused on providing jobs and equal opportunities for all and ensuring that the benefits of the EU's growth and jobs drive reached everyone in society. By modernising labour markets and social protection systems, it helped people seize the opportunities created by international competition, technological advances and changing population patterns while protecting the most vulnerable ones in society.

Concerning poverty and equal opportunities, the Agenda focused on:

- Analysing the impact of ageing population and the future of relationships between generations, by launching a Green Paper on demography Supporting the Member States in reforming pensions and health care systems and tackling poverty,
- Tackling discrimination and inequality: the Commission will examine minimum income schemes in the Member States and set out a policy approach for tackling discrimination, particularly against ethnic minorities such as the Roma,
- Fostering equal opportunities between women and men, for example by setting up a gender institute,
- Clarifying the role and characteristics of social services of public interest.

Furthermore, in 2010 the European Council agreed on a new strategy that gives prominence to “inclusive growth” and cohesive society in light of the interdependence of economic, employment and social cohesion policies. Among five EU headline targets of the Europe 2020 strategy, one of them relates to the promotion of social inclusion, in particular through the reduction of poverty.
