MOSCOW, November 23 (Itar-Tass) —— A bill on social services in Russia will be submitted to the Russian government in January 2013, Deputy Minister Of Labor and Social Protection Alexei Vovchenko said on Thursday at hearings on that bill at the Russian Public Chamber.
According to Vovchenko, the key provision of the bill is the one that allows non-profit organization to offer social services to population, along with state agencies. He also said that this provision will be applicable also to volunteers and business structures.
The bill provides for a mechanism of financing non-state organizations both through subsidies and through the system of state orders for social services. Regions will have to make lists of those who offer social services and those who receive them.
He drew attention to another novelty in the bill – social backing. “It means maximally long provision of services in a habitual environment,” he said. Such social backing is meant for the elderly, people with disabilities and other people who need social services at home.
