Porto summit must lead to concrete action

Joint Statement by Social Services Europe

Caritas Europa, as a member of Social Services Europe, issued this joint statement ahead of the Porto Social Summit 2021

For Caritas Europa and Social Services Europe alike, EU policy guidance needs to emphasise the priority to invest in people, in the quality of social services and in leaving no one behind in our societies. Bigger shares from the EU funds and the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) and better earmarking would support the recovery in the social
services sector and much help the social service providers to effectively fulfil their missions and tasks.
