Social assistance to families and children

The state support system for families and children comprises two main parts: benefits paid irrespective of the family assets and income and the assistance paid to poor families according to their income level.
 

Efforts to improve the social assistance system for families and children embody the following important areas: development of socioeconomic environment by reducing unemployment; promotion of occupational activity; improvement of the family and children support system; increase in the family responsibilities for the family well-being; creation of conditions favourable for families in solving housing problems; co-ordination of family allowances with other forms of assistance and other measures promoting more active integration into the labour market through education.
