An off-site reception hall of the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy was held on 7 June 2017 as part of the programme of the National Forum & Exhibition on Social Services, Employment, Development, organized by NASO together with EASPD, the MLSP, the NAMRB and Varna Municipality.
On behalf of the MLSP, Deputy Ministers Rositsa Dimitrova and Ivaylo Ivanov took part in the meeting which was of great interest to the participants in the forum who asked questions and put forward proposals for changes in the social sector regulatory framework.
Questions were brought up about the need for personalized social services to be integrated and to meet individual needs. The attendees also discussed the employment opportunities for people with disabilities, the reforms in disability and employability assessments, the development of sheltered employment and the extension of supported employment. Attention was paid to the need for better regulation of social entrepreneurship and its role for social services and the business sector. The proposals made will be summarised and submitted by NASO to the responsible institutions.
