Actively operating through its members across 21 EU Member States, it brings together PHS national trade associations, employers’ organisations, providers, and companies involved in the enhancement of personal and household services. Moreover, EFSI is recognised by its trade unions counterparts as PHS employers’ organisations representative.

    Established in 2006, the EFSI’s mission is to foster a favourable environment for the PHS sector in Europe, especially by improving the image and perception of the sector and promoting adequate policies in support of its development. Furthermore, EFSI’s Members vision is to ensure that the specificities of the sector are acknowledged and guarantee that the provision, access to high quality and affordable PHS services are granted resulting from adequate economic, social, and legal conditions.
