Social services providers to get more money from the state


Social services providers are to get more money from the state next year. Responding to an urgent request from the Labour Ministry the government on Monday earmarked an addition 335 million crowns for organizations providing services for elderly and disabled people. At present social services are provided by some 2,600 organizations, of which more than half are non-profit. Without the additional funds services for close to 15,000 clients would have had to be scrapped due to a lack of funds.
