ESSC 2022

The European Social Services Conference is the largest annual forum for public social services professionals in Europe.

How can social services professionals take advantage of the new EU budget and national resilience and recovery funds to invest and build on this transformation to modernise and reform social services?

Watch the recap of our first in-person conference since 2019, where we discussed the need to rethink the planning, implementation, and evaluation of community-based social services after Covid-19.


Covid-19 has transformed the way we deliver social services. Throughout the pandemic, frontline social services professionals implemented new and innovative, digital, agile, and remote ways of working so that care could continue to be provided for vulnerable children and families, people with disabilities, the homeless and young and older people.
