Les Amis d’Accompagner asbl (The friends of Accompanying) is a frontline NGO that provides socio-legal services that focus on the accompanying people in need by supporting them take steps to find a solution to their problems:
- Located in Brussels
- Composed by a team of volunteers supervised by professionals
- Part of a network of institutions and NGOs
- Working all over Belgium
- Benefitting from rigorous financial management.
The association has 2 services: the socio-legal one and the support to partners. The 2 services work towards the same aim.
The socio-legal service welcomes people in precarious situations who make an appointment to come to our offices. It follows beneficiaries throughout the process, aiming at improving their situation. This process may involve being accompanied in the field by a trained volunteer.
The service to partners proposes to accompany beneficiaries who are taken care of by other organisations or NGOs. The latter assess the needs of the beneficiary and introduce the request to the service to partners office.
