EPR full and associate members are invited to attend this half-day event.


This year Public Affairs event will focus on the previously launched Call for Good Practices on Rights and Ethics in social services. As part of its ongoing framework agreement with EaSI, the European Union’s Programme for Employment and Social Innovation, the European Platform for Rehabilitation (EPR) has tasked the EQUASS unit to study on the topic “Rights and Ethics in Practice in European Social Services of General Interest”. This report will showcase diverse practices that have a verified and sustained impact on the lives of persons served.


This study will lead to the publication of a compendium of good practices pertaining to the principles of Rights and Ethics, as outlined in the Voluntary European Quality Framework (VEQF) for SSG as well as the two quality principles "Rights" and "Ethics" that our partners and certified organisations know so well.

We are calling on our partners and certified social service providers across Europe to send us their good practices, in relation to:

• Supporting service users or their representatives, families, or carers in understanding their rights and how to practice those rights, or
• Promoting the right to access community-based services, or
• Promoting the right to self-advocacy, or
• Promoting and raising awareness on confidentiality and privacy issues in social service delivery, or
• Detecting, preventing or addressing abuse of service users in social services


More relevant information here.

Deadline for submitting good practices is 11th August 2017.

Information about the programme will be published soon.
