The steering committee of the project BESPAT – Best European Policies, Analysis and Transference in PHS – took place in Madrid on 3-4 November. Aldo Xhani, Coordinator of the Citizenship Programme, brought in the outcomes of the local process developed in cooperation with ALDA’s members and partners.

More than 20 stakeholders, regional and local authorities, civil society associations and private actors were involved in the process of collecting good practices on the professionalisation of personal and household services from across Europe. Four practices have been assessed as those best matching the requirements of the project and showcased during the partners’ meeting: the project BADAMI, sponsored by the Municipality of Ravenna; the Mobile Learning Solution promoted by the Northern Ireland social Care Council; the Elderly for Higher Quality of Living at Home programme, managed by the Association of Pensioners of Slovenia; and the Domiphone Application, launched by Edenred.

The general objective of the project BESPAT is to identify and exchange good practices regarding the policies and actions in the sector of personal and household services as a way to define a Policies and Actions Proposal to encourage the efficiency of these services and to contribute through the creation of new jobs to the objectives of European 2020 Strategy.
