FSWS Chief Executive Officer Alfred Grixti has been appointed as a member of the Board of Trustees of the European Social Network (ESN). This is the first time that such a post is being occupied by a Maltese person.
The Board of Trustees oversees the work of the ESN’s executive team and is appointed for three years. The nominations of Grixti and the seven other members of the ESN Board of Trustees were confirmed during a meeting of the ESN’s Governing Council held on Monday. The ESN is an umbrella organisation grouping 140 social welfare services organisations from 35 European Countries.
Grixti said that this is an achievement both for the Foundation for Social Welfare Services and Malta. He said that during such challenging times social services are the solution for many members of our society. FSWS has always been instrumental and rose to the occasion during the COVID19 challenging times.
He said that from this position he will work in tandem with the other board members of the European Social Services so that the FSWS professionals will continue to benefit for the best interest of its service users.
