A project led by

Founded in 1984 during the "AIDS years," Groupe SOS is a nonprofit association, a major actor in social cohesion in France and worldwide.

Groupe SOS mainly operates in the fields of solidarity, youth, health, and seniors, managing establishments for marginalized individuals, as well as daycare centers, hospitals, and nursing homes open to everyone. As a player in the social and solidarity economy (SSE), Groupe SOS believes that these sectors should not be profit-driven.

Aware that exclusions take various forms, Groupe SOS also acts in the fields of ecological transition, territorial exclusions, sustainable businesses, and culture for all.

Groupe SOS also holds a leading position in the field of insertion: it provides opportunities for people in precarious situations by offering them contracts or training within its structures.

With 22,000 employees and its field expertise, Groupe SOS regularly takes positions on social and environmental issues. At this stage, there are no comparable associations in terms of size, scope, and diversity of interventions.

22,000 employees, 2 million beneficiaries, 750 establishments, associations, and social enterprises, 50 countries.
