Transformation of Social Services Project

The Czech Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs has been supporting the process of transformation and de-institutionalization of social care services on a long-term basis. The strategy of replacing institutional care for people with disabilities with community-based care in their natural environment is nation-wide and is based not only on the existing Czech legislation, but mainly on the process of implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the reports of the European De-institutionalisation Expert Group.
