About us


The European Federation for Services to Individuals (EFSI) is the voice of the Personal and Household Services industry at European level, representing national associations, employers’ organisations, PHS providers and companies involved in the development of personal and household services, and currently operating in 21 EU Member States.

The personal and household services sector (PHS) includes a broad range of activities mainly carried out in households and related to personal assistance (early childhood and education care, childcare, long-term care in situations of dependence, disability, invalidity, etc.), broadly identified as “care-related services”, and to activities of daily living (cleaning, ironing, gardening, small DIY, maintenance, remedial classes, etc.) united under the term of “household support services”.

Established in 2006, EFSI is a membership-based organisation whose mission is to shape a more favourable environment for PHS industry in Europe, especially by improving the image and perception of PHS sector and promoting adequate policies in support of its development.

EFSI offers unique access to and engagement with European policymakers and stakeholders (trade unions, academic world, think tanks, NGOs).
