The managing authority of Operational Programme Human Resources Development launches a call for applications for direct grant under the procedure Parents in Employment. The Parents in Employment Procedure aims to facilitate the access to the labour market of all those parents, raising children between the age of 0 and 5, so that they will be able to maintain their labour and economic activities, employment and income or find a new job.

At the same time, unemployed persons will have the opportunity to be hired as babysitters and children carers. Eligible for the services are employed parents on sick leave or parental leave and unemployed parents, whose children have not been enrolled in child-care institution.

The Ministry of Labour and Social Policy has published for public debate a project for changes to the Regulations for applying the Social Assistance Act. Proposed changes will make some of the current texts in the social service sector more precise. Furthermore, they will regulate the order, way and methodology, under which social service providers will make an individual assessment of the needs for support and an individual plan for use of social services, as well as their content.
