While demographic trends are leading France, like its European partners, towards an aging population, at the same time it is experiencing a unique situation that has persisted for many years with a high fertility rate. Thus, since 2018, it ranks first in Europe with an index of 1.87  , followed by Sweden (1.76) and Romania (1.76) well above the European average which is 1.56.
A high fertility rate and an aging population lead the territories to a situation of very significant growth in demand for personal services. The early childhood sector, that of services for the elderly and the disabled are becoming strategic axes for the development and attractiveness of the territories.
Without a crèche, without childminders, without home help and adapted structures, the territories display a low demographic attractiveness with negative consequences for economic activity and employment.

In France, the increase in life expectancy opens up several perspectives, first on the evolution of support for people at home and in particular around dependency. Then, the new generation of elderly people stay healthy longer, they are better trained and more demanding on the services provided and the way of aging at home, particularly in terms of services. This leads to new needs related to home care.
At the level of the medical professions, the caregivers, who could take part in the accompaniment of the elderly person, are more and more forced to carry out only their service without having the time to stay longer with the person to help him in his daily life.
In general, the issues encountered are multiple. They are primarily societal when it comes to preserving a certain quality of life. The scope of SAPs is relatively vague here and begins with the loss of autonomy, even very relative...
In addition, the subject questions us about the relationship of our society to young children, aging and people with disabilities . He questions us about our models of care between the total externalization of the home and the models internalized in the families. The challenge is to find room for maneuver for a new territorial model of Services to People (SAP).
The SAP sector is currently facing a double qualitative and quantitative challenge when it comes to the needs of the inhabitants:
Services to people are a fundamental issue for our contemporary societies. Whatever the territories in France or in Europe, it will be a question of taking care of our elders as well as our youngest through all the states of loss of autonomy. Between placing the burden on the family alone or on the State, other organizations are possible and to be sought.
The project consists in identifying, in France and in Europe with partners from different countries, the most innovative practices, the most sustainable models in order to capitalize and then offer them in our territories.
Moreover, in these sectors, recruitment difficulties are concomitant with unsuitable training, which is too theoretical or too rigid.
This project aims to offer, with our partners, micro-certifications organized into blocks of skills.
The project consists of identifying territorial innovations in terms of services to people and analyzing and capitalizing them in order to be able to transfer them to its own territory.
