SSE Working Areas
Social Services Europe’s working areas are (social and health) services of general interest – i.e. more concretely a sustainable and supportive legal/regulatory, financial and quality EU-level framework for social services –, the role of social service providers, staff and human resource issues, the quality of social services, social innovation, social economy, EU Structural Funds and the European Semester.
Social Services Europe aims to strengthen the profile and position of social services, and to promote the role of not-for-profit social service providers throughout Europe. Furthermore, the network wants to ensure that the specificity of not-for-profit social and health care service providers is recognised and that supportive and adequate economic, social and legal conditions exist for quality social and health care services, both at EU-level and within the EU MS. SSE also supports a culture of effective social dialogue and industrial relations.
