Since its creation in 1945, Secours populaire has helped victims of insecurity, poverty, natural disasters and conflicts both in France and across all continents.
In France, the SPF is particularly attentive to the problems of exclusion: in the short-term through emergency support based on food and clothing. Emergency accommodation or referral to a support centre also remains at the heart of the concerns of Secours populaire.
The SPF also supports individuals and families over the long term in their rights and lives: access to housing, health, holidays, culture and leisure, sport and professional integration. Whether an emergency or not, the respect and dignity of persons assisted is vital for the association.
