Highlights 2015
 
Launch of our Annual Review 2014

We are delighted to share our annual report with you, highlighting our work and achievements from the past year, as well as moments from our first 15 years as the network for social services in Europe.

2014 reminded us, once more, of how important it is to ensure that we promote an inclusive, caring and cohesive society. Working with our members, service users and other stakeholders, we learned that solutions must be found at the local level, and that social services have a central role to play, together with other sectors, in improving people’s lives in their communities.
