A new study entitled “Study on social services with particular focus on personal targeted social services for people in vulnerable situations” has recently been published by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion.

The study was carried out by VVA, Panteia, Oxford Research, Erudio, IKEI conducted by the European Commission and HÉTFA was providing country expertise on Hungary.

To support the European Pillar of Social Rights and its Action Plan in delivering on their objectives, the project analysed the current situation in the area of social services, including personal targeted social services, across the Member States and strived to establish a common understanding of key terms and approaches in line with the European Commission’s emphasis on integrity, quality, and equality. The aim of the project was to lay down the foundation upon which the Commission can build to ensure that social services can develop their full potential within the context of the European Pillar of Social Rights.
