At the beginning of 2000, the government and its partners established that not all Flemish people had access to holidays. To this end, VISITFLANDERS set up the Holiday Participation Centre in May 2001. Its aim is to enable those living in poverty to go on holiday. The European ‘poverty line’ is the norm applied here. Since 2014, this network has also been working on barriers other than the financial one.
