Providing and Financing the Social Services in the Community – International Experience, Bulgarian Practice, Opportunities for Changes

Object of the study is the financing of the social services in the community. The paper focuses on learning lessons from the international experience (Netherlands, Great Britain) and from the Bulgarian practice. It suggests possible solutions for a change of the model of financing the social services.
