Social services and welfare. How R2P helps to determine the needs of the population from the communities along the contact line

For a long time, the Charitable Fund ''Right to Protection'' (R2P) has been supporting communities near the contact line. Yesterday our colleagues Yevhen Maksymenko, the lawyer, and Ketevan Kazanovska, the expert on the social and political issues, took part in a meeting of the working group to determine the social needs of the population of Svitlodars’k city amalgamated territorial community (ATC).

Tetyana Yerokhina, the Chairman of the working group and the Deputy Head of Svitlodars’k City Civil-Military Administration (CMA), thanked the R2P for developing the Social Passport of Svitlodars’k ATC and for the legal aid during the reorganization of the municipal institution (Bakhmut District Territorial Center for Social Services) in the Center for Social Services of Svitlodars’k CMA.

Also during the meeting there was a discussion on:

  • the social services legal framework in the context of the amalgamated territorial communities;
  • the base principles of the working group and the on the work plan for 2022;
  • the logic of interaction of the structural departments of the Svitlodars’k CMA with the social service entities, NGOs, and CSOs in the process of determining the social needs of the population.

The legal aid is provided within the framework of the project ''Support of the amalgamated territorial communities along the contact line during the reorganization of social and administrative services under the decentralization reform'', which is implemented in the Donetsk and the Luhansk regions by the CF ''Right to Protection'' (R2P) with the support of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
