Sharing experiences

FSC collaborates with organizations in other countries to contribute our experience and know-how

As far as in 1992, the European Commission selected us (under our former name as ABS, in consortium with Intersalus), to coordinate the EU Phare Programme on Drug Demand Reduction, coordinating a team in 11 Central and Eastern European countries and with experts from 8 EU member states.

Subsequently, ABS (later FSC) took over the leadership of two “LIEN” programmes in cooperation with Romanian and Bulgarian NGOs on Children and adolescents HIV+, prostitution and sex trafficking. Also the leadership of a Socrates programme (European Catalogue of Health Education Materials for Adults), for 3 years and with the participation of 9 EU member states.

Subsequently, FSC has participated and/or led several EU programmes:


  • The Day After”: Training and support for youth served in residential care institutions for the day after reaching the age of majority. Coordinated by FSC under Strategic Partnerships for Youth.
