ESN NEWSLETTER. ESN Brings together people who are key to the design and delivery of local public social services across Europe.

Care is a relationship between two people: one who needs care and another who provides it. Behind this, however, lies a complex set of relationships between numerous stakeholders – financers, planners, regulators, providers, case-managers and service users. ESN's latest report explores these relationships and their impact on the quality of long-term care for older people in six European countries.
