Call for Proposals 2018 - Promotion of domestic worker cooperatives and service voucher schemes VP/2018/013 Closed!


The objectives of this Pilot Project are:

  • The pilot project will provide advice, technical assistance and a range of tailored guidance activities and recommendations to Member States interested in developing the PHS sector, and will support the exchange of good practices among key stakeholders, national public administrations (municipalities/local administrations in the case of a trial introduction) and organisations of domestic workers, carers and employers.
  • Regarding the social dialogue and decent working conditions, the project will facilitate the professionalisation of these jobs, the dissemination of information on the rights and obligations of workers and employers and the creation and development of an effective social dialogue.


The consortium should implement at least the following activities:

  1. For Member States more advanced (FR, FI, SE, DK, BE, IE, DE, ES, IT, PT, CY, NL, LU) in the development of personal and household services (PHS) the tasks will be organised around two main activities:
    • collection of good practices concerning the development of formal employment in this sector;
    • reinforcement and development of social dialogue for domestic workers
  2. For Member States where personal and household services (PHS) are less developed (AT, CZ, GR, MT, SK, BG, EE, HR, HU, LT, LV, PL, RO, SI) the tasks will be organised around two sets of activities:
    • dissemination of good practices;
    • technical assistance.
  3. At European level, the consortium should design and implement a communication and awareness-raising plan focusing on the two objectives of the pilot project
