The implementation of EU Working Time Directive in the sector of social care and support services for persons with disabilities is facing critical challenges. Provision of personalized and community-based support requires flexible working patterns for staff working in the sector. To ensure this flexibility, service providers, who often operate under severe financial constraints, have no choice but to circumvent the Directive. This has direct consequences on the quality of services and working conditions. In order to make the Directive work in social care and support, it has to be adapted to the needs of the sector.


During the EASPD international conference taking place in Podgorica, Montenegro, on the 26-27 October, 170 professionals from Europe and beyond gathered to debate around Sustainable Development Goals and their link to the realisation of supportive and inclusive communities. The event was organised in cooperation with the  Petrović Njegoš Foundation, the Centre de la Gabrielle and Egart.


The Federation of European Social Employers (FESE) was set-up and launched last Friday in Brussels.
