The FEI Solidarity Committee, chaired by the FEI President HRH Princess Haya, held its first meeting at the FEI Headquarters in Lausanne (SUI) last week.
 
The Committee agreed that FEI Solidarity, the aim of which is to organise assistance to the National Federations (NFs), in particular to those which have the greatest need, will take the form of financial, technical, consultancy and communication support.
 
A three-year FEI Solidarity plan will be established in the coming months and will include procedures for applications for FEI Solidarity projects and programmes, evaluation criteria and decision-making process as well as communication tools.
 
Two new full-time FEI Solidarity Officers, based in the FEI Headquarters, will be recruited shortly.
 
FEI Solidarity funds were allocated to specific projects and it was agreed that all future applications must be forwarded to the FEI Solidarity Department, formerly the FEI Coaching Department, through the NFs. The deadline for submission of applications for each following year will be 1 July of the previous year. A special timeline for 2012 applications will be set up at the Committee’s next meeting which will take place during the FEI General Assembly in November in Rio de Janeiro (BRA).
