Our Partners

The European Social Services Awards brings people from across Europe together to celebrate achievements in social services and the passion and dedication of those who work in the delivery of social services to make a difference for the most vulnerable in our societies.

Partners can:

  • Meet social services professionals with different backgrounds and from different sectors
  • Learn about the latest social policy and practice trends
  • Discuss opportunities and challenges
  • Showcase solutions and products to potential clients.

Partners can benefit from displaying an exhibition stand during the networking day, sponsoring an award category and/or the gala dinner.

Contact the ESN Development Coordinator Francesco Capuani at francesco.capuani@esn-eu.org to find out more about the partnership opportunities available.


City of Zagreb, City Office for Social Protection, Health, War Veterans and People with Disabilities

Large enough to call it a metropolis and small enough for a pleasant life, Zagreb has been living under the protection of the Sljeme slopes and in the calming presence of the river Sava valley with its clean, clear water for centuries. The exceptional hospitality of the citizens and the rich culture and tourism it offers are the main reasons why the City of Zagreb was voted the best Christmas destination in Europe three years in a row.

The City of Zagreb is one of the most socially responsible cities in the Republic of Croatia. It provides security and a better standard of living to its citizens through numerous social policy measures and care of persons with disabilities, retirees, children, families and students, as well as by actively supporting social and humanitarian programmes and associations’ projects.
