Our Objectives


The Social Employers have four very clear overarching aims, which guide our work

  • We want quality social services, available to all people in Europe
  • We want to represent social services employers at EU level
  • We want social services employers to be recognised as sectoral social partners at European level
  • We want a European Union, based on the value of human rights, solidarity, ecological sustainability, social justice, democratic participation and the priority given to social profit

We will do so by

  • Strengthening employers in social services at European and national level
  • Influencing European legislation
  • Establishing common positions between members; before negotiating with European Trade Union associations
  • Stimulating the exchange of promising practices among its members
