JULY 21, PULSE Project experts reviewed the draft Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers «On Approving the Model Regulations for the Center for Social Support for Children and Families”. The document was prepared by the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy.

While supporting the idea of enhancing social protection of children in general, the experts expressed a number substantial commented with regard to the following:

- mechanisms and competence of local governments in setting up, running and closing the center;

- appointment and dismissal of the director of the center;

- organisational aspects of the emergency aid unit; and,

- the list of services the center provides.

In the context of the current community consolidation processes, the AUC offers an opportunity for the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy to consider the option of setting up village and town council children service units and vest them with the authority to establish Centers for Social Support for Children and Families.

The AUC concurred with the draft resolution with reservations and sent the corresponding letter to the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy.
