On 23 March 2016, POUR LA SOLIDARITÉ along with the For Quality! project partners will organise the closing conference on improving the quality of jobs and services in the personal and household services sector across Europe. The event will be held from 9am to 2pm at the European Economic and Social Committee in Brussels.

For Quality!

At the heart of European policies for twenty years, personal care and household services (PHS) are an important source of employment while helping meeting the growing socio-health needs. But what quality of jobs and services rendered? The project For Quality! offers a qualitative analysis of the current situation of PHS in eleven European countries and offers to stakeholders a powerful tool of exchange towards improved working conditions in this sector.

This major project is co-funded by the PROGRESS Programme of the EU and has been running since November 2014, under the coordination of PLS, in partnership with eight partner organisations.

The conference aims to present a set of European recommendations and a toolkit providing a set of practices transferable throughout the European continent in the PHS sector.
