The European Social Services Awards

The European Social Services Awards (ESSA), led by the European Social Network (ESN), recognise innovation and excellence in social services in Europe, shining a spotlight on successful new approaches and the extraordinary ongoing work done by public social services managers, funders, planners and providers.

The Awards aim to:
• Identify and promote best practice in social services;
• Recognise excellent work done in the field;
• Encourage peers to work with and support each other in improving their practice;
• Promote innovation in social services in Europe.

The ESSA are pioneers in bringing people from across Europe to celebrate social services’ achievements and the passion and dedication of those who work in social services to make a difference for the most vulnerable in our societies.
