    Local Authorities constitute the statutory expression of the local state. Amongst the policies they implement, social interventions are of particular importance, as they aim at the welfare and development of local society. The aim of this study is to examine the restrictions of social interventions carried out by Local Authorities, as dictated by central social policy. In relation to the study of the Greek institutional framework in force, those factors are examined which bring about the successful provision of social services by the local state. According to a model of logistic regression that interprets the factors of satisfaction among those benefiting from the social services in the Municipality of Keratsini Attica, it was discovered that the problems in planning local social actions are similar to those in central systems.
