Abstract

The goal of the paper is to systemize and suggest scientific arguments to support the transition in Bulgaria from the model of financing social services based on the principle “money follows the supplier” to the alternative model based on the principle “money follows the client”. 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.
