In 2009, the responsibility for delivery of social and family services was transferred from the central government to the municipalities. To support the process of decentralization, a strategy was developed in 2012 to be implemented in 2013–2017.
The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the effective transformation of the social service system in Kosovo - focusing on improved quality, availability and sustainability of local social and community-based service delivery for children and vulnerable people living at social risk. Central, municipal and non-state actors including NGOs and social enterprises will engage collaboratively in community-based social service delivery. Municipalities will implement local action plans, with the support of licensed social service providers, and allocate resources for their realization.
- Develop a capacity advancement system to train stakeholders in effectively supporting the transformation process
- Provide technical assistance for the establishment of sustainable partnerships and increased capacity for community-based social service delivery
- Provide financial support to social service providers including day care and home care services
