Decentralisation of Social Services in Romania

  1. 1. Our donors CHILD PROTECTION HUB FOR SOUTH EAST EUROPE W W W . C H I L D H U B . O R G Romania STATS AND INFO POSITIVE PRACTICES WELFARE SYSTEM STRUCTURE ISSUES WITH THE SYSTEM 39,4% OF CHILDREN 0-17 YEARS OLD WERE IN RISK OF POVERTY IN 2014 THE TOTAL EXPENDITURE WITH SOCIAL PROTECTION IS 12,2 % OF GDP, WHILE THE EXPENDITURE WITH SOCIAL SERVICES IS 0,6% GDP; SOCIAL CARE SERVICES IN ROMANIA ARE IN THE MANDATE OF BOTH NATIONAL AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS. THE NATIONAL LEVEL KEEPS THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR SEVERAL LARGE RESIDENTIAL INSTITUTIONS IN THE DISABILITY SECTOR, BUT THE NUMBER OF THESE SERVICES IS VERY SMALL. SMALL CITIES OR RURAL COMMUNES HAVE DIFFICULTIES SECURING FUNDS AND STAFF FOR DELIVERING QUALITATIVE SOCIAL CARE. CAPACITY OF COUNTIES TO PLAN, DELIVER AND MONITOR SOCIAL SERVICES VARIES EXTENSIVELY. MUNICIPALITIES DO NOT RECEIVE STATE BUDGET FOR SOCIAL SERVICES, ONLY COUNTIES DO. LOCAL ACTION GROUPS (LAG): COMPOSED OF MUNICIPALITIES, PRIVATE COMPANIES, ENTREPRENEURS, SOCIAL NGOS, COOPERATIVES ETC. THEY FUNCTION ONLY IN RURAL AREAS AND CONSTITUTE A NETWORK OF PARTNERS, WHICH ACT TOGETHER FOR THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OF THE RESPECTIVE MICROREGION. NGOS HAVE PROGRESSIVELY DEVELOPED SOCIAL SERVICES THAT CANNOT BE ENSURED EASILY BY PUBLIC AUTHORITIES
