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.
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?
Join public authorities, professionals, and care providers at the 30th European Social Services Conference in Hamburg between 8-10 June 2022 to discuss the innovations which have already taken place, and how we can use the new tools available to rethink the planning, implementation, and evaluation of community-based social services.
