Eurodiaconia is pleased to invite its members and partners to its webinar on Long-term Care & the European Pillar of Social Rights. The webinar will take place on the 25th of September from 10 to 11 am.

This online event is aimed at providing the participants with a better understanding of the European Pillar of Social Rights as a policy tool, as well as assessing its implementation in the area of long-term care. Our partners form AGE Platform Europe will join the webinar and provide a short analysis, followed by a discussion with participants. Participants will be encouraged to formulate recommendations on a better implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights with regard to long-term care.

The European Pillar of Social Rights contains 20 principles and has been jointly proclaimed by all EU Institutions last year. Thus, all EU Institutions and the Member States have made a commitment to implement those 20 principles and to make the inherent social rights a reality for all persons legally residing on their territory. Principle 18 regards Long-term care and includes the right of everyone to affordable long-term care services of good quality, in particular home-care and community-based services.
