Policy

Engaging with the European Union

The Federation of European Social Employers actively engages with the European institutions and other relevant stakeholders to ensure that European policies, funds and other activities support the sector’s ability to provide quality care and support services and create attractive jobs.

The Social Employers and its members  provide their views on economic, employment and social policies by issuing Position Papers and responding to European Commission consultations on relevant topics. The Social Employers aims to provide input into the development and monitoring of all relevant policies or activities which impact social services employers' at national, regional and local level.

The Social Employers also provides briefing papers to further present and facilitate the understanding of policies relevant for social services employers at European and national level.
