The Secretary General of EASPD, Luk Zelderloo, will participate in the event "The Role of Social Services in the Implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights", wich will take place in the European Parliament (Room P1 C047) next 24th of April. The event aims to gather key EU policy-makers and stakeholders to address the key role of social services for the effective implementation of the principles enshrined in the European Pillar of Social Rights.
As the Pillar is entering its key implementation phase, Social Services Europe (SSE) will engage in a dialogue with policy-makers to show why social services play an essential role in implementing the principles of the Pillar and should hence be promoted as key enablers of such goals. A new SSE position paper on the topic will be presented and discussed with stakeholders at the event.
This debate is organised by Social Services Europe, the largest European umbrella organisation representing non-profit social and health care providers. SSE’s members include EASPD, Caritas Europa, CEDAG, EPR, Eurodiaconia, FEANTSA, SOLIDAR and the Red Cross EU Office- together represent more than 100,000 social and health care providers at the forefront of ensuring accessible, affordable and quality services for all people in Europe.
