The European Social Services Conference (ESSC) has long been pioneering the value of international knowledge sharing to transform people’s lives. Over the years, thousands of senior professionals from all corners of the world have come together to share new ideas and improve services as a result. The 25th ESSC is being organised for the first time in cooperation with the Maltese Government, who will be presiding over the Council of the European Union. This special anniversary edition will explore how new innovative practices and technology can help create better local social services for the future.
