    BESPAT (Best European Policies, Analysis and Transference in PHS) is a Progress project whose aim is to identify and exchange Good Practices all over Europe 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 quality and the efficiency of these services and to contribute through the creation of new jobs to the objectives of European 2020 Strategy.  The project foresees the realisation of two products: The Guide of Good practices under the responsibility of DIESIS and the PHS Research and Proposals Guide under the responsibility of CONFESAL.
    The project enjoys a very committed partnership composed by representatives of the Social Economy, networks of Local Authorities and Regional authorities and non-governmental organizations: CONFESAL (ConfederaciĆ³n Empresarial de Sociedades Laborales de EspaƱa), DIESIS (European Research and Development Service for the Social Economy), ALDA (Association of Local Democracy Agencies), Scuola Nazionale Servizi, REVES (European Network of Cities & Regions for the Social Economy).


    The aim of this document is to present and describe the good practices in the PHS sector identified by the BESPAT Partnership.
    Good practices may be defined as experiences that:

    • solve a problem or responds to a social demand;
    • use innovative methods or mechanisms;
    • see participation and empowerment of the different players;
    • achieve demonstrable results superior to those of other experiences;
    • last over time;
    • capable of being replicated by other organizations.

    Good practices can be carried out by public entities at a national, regional or local level, or else by other players and sector stakeholders: suppliers, business associations, non-governmental organizations, etc.


    The process of identification followed by the BESPAT partnership is based on qualitative criteria and focused on facts and figures enabling identification of whether the practices produce positive results, whether can be sustained over time and whether they show a trend towards continuous improvement.
    In particular, the analysis has been based on the following criteria:

    • Foundation
    • Relevance
    • Consistency
    • Maturity
    • Empowerment of players
    • Evaluation and monitoring
    • Transferability
    • Sustainability
    • Innovation
    • Impact on gender equality


    Those qualitative criteria are enriched by two quantitative elements that will be also helpful in the analysis, in particular:

    • Resources Assignedv
    • Impacts
