"The European Social Services Conference 2017 was one of the most unique, interesting and interactive conferences I’ve ever attended. The venue, delegates, sessions and organisation were superb. I would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in how social services in Europe and elsewhere can transform the lives of individuals and communities"
“Congratulations on a great conference. I’ve been at a number of big international conferences and this was one of the most professional and friendly, with great content. Well done to the organisers who were unfailingly polite and helpful. We had a great experience and really enjoyed our workshop session”.
