“Community planning of social services through public dialogue” Project
Social services should meet the real needs of people, including of vulnerable groups, that’s why they should be involved in planning of services at community level. This project aims at supporting local public authorities from Cahul, Glodeni and Strășeni districts to plan the social services together with the beneficiaries and representatives of civil society, using the principles and advantages of a public, inclusive dialogue. The main activities that will be realised within the project are: 1) sharing experience of public authorities from the Czech Republic regarding the community planning of social services; 2) analysis of capacities and resources for planning and providing social services; 3) preparation of the methodological guide for community planning and its dissemination among authorities, social services providers; 4) training of public administration staff responsible for the preparation of community plans; 5) informing and involving the public into the process of planning social services; 6) finalising and approving the Community Plans in the three designated districts; 7) capacity building of local civil society organisations on strategic planning, monitoring and evaluation, participatory budgeting and advocacy. The project is implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Health, Labour and Social Protection.
