Ukraine: National consultant for development of methodological recommendations on involvement of non-state actors in social service provision at community level (Open to Nationals of Ukraine only)

By UN Children’s Fund Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Ukraine
Closing date: 25 Oct 2018

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, every right

Today, in light of full scale decentralization reform, more powers are transferred to local authorities. The same applies to their areas of responsibility. In particular, this happened with provision of social services, including social services for children and families with children. Institutions that were previously established with state support and provided social services, on the one hand, are not available in all territorial communities, on the other hand, the cost of their operation is often unaffordable for communities. As a result, engagement of non-state social service providers in communities is becoming of significant importance. However, lack of providers of certain social services and inability of authorities to organize this process are common problems.

Taking this into account, the Government Priority Action Plan for 2018 (approved by the Cabinet of Ministers on March 28, 2018) includes development of methodological recommendations for the involvement of non-state social service providers in communities. The Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine is responsible for the elaboration of these methodological recommendations.

UNICEF Ukraine closely cooperates with the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine and provides the Ministry with the technical assistance in formulating national policies for children and families with children. At the moment, the Ministry has expressed the need for technical assistance in the above mentioned methodological support.

Purpose of the consultancy is to provide technical support to the Ministry of Social Policy in developing methodological recommendations for involving non-state social service providers in communities.
