An exploration of current practices

European Social Network

The European Social Network (ESN) is the independent network for public social services in Europe. Because of demographic, economic and social changes, the demand for social services is increasing and services are also getting more diverse.

Therefore, there has been an increasing focus in the need to ensure a greater cooperation between social services and related services in the sectors health, education and labor.

Integrated social services

Vilans carries out a systematic literature review about integrated social services and executes a practice review with ESN members. 43 practices are collected and analyzed. The aim is to present the state of play in regards to integrated services across Europe, as well as to identify and analyze the current practice of public authorities’ integrated services delivery.
