EPR develops analysis and advocacy on policy and initiatives at EU level that affect the social services sector. The social services sector as defined by the European Commission covers employment and training services, social housing, child care, long-term care and social assistance services.
EPR focuses on:
:: Report of Social Services Europe “Improving work-life balance through enabling social services: From service provision to decent policies” (2018)
:: Input into the public consultations on the future of the EU funding programmes from EPR members’ perspectives (2018)
:: Examples of public procurement practice from across Europe from SSE members
EPR often works on these topics within the Social Services Europe network.
