European Commission: Poland spends little on social benefits

– The conclusions of the European Commission are in line with those that we, as EAPN Poland, presented in our last report “Poverty Watch 2021”. The number of people who benefit from mainstream social welfare benefits is declining and the percentage of children, adults, including seniors, living in extreme poverty is increasing. At the same time, the benefits are very low – notes Natalia Jungrav-Gieorgica from EAPN Polska, i.e. the Polish Committee of the European Anti-Poverty Network.
