Long-term development strategy for social services in selected municipalities with extended powers to 2030 (accent on the determinants strategy).



The thesis deals with the issue of long-term strategy for the development of social services in the municipality with extended scope Světlá nad Sázavou to r. 2030. The aim was to describe the current situation in selected municipalities in terms of facilities and related social services to handle the forecast population on a given territory by 2030 and ratify the lessons learned in terms of the need for social services in the interviews with key players in the field of social and related services. The theoretical part is focused mainly on the concept and characteristics of social services and related issues with regard to demographic changes. The practical part is divided into three parts. In the case study, I firstly describe the current state of social and health services in the municipality with extended powers Světlá. In the second part of the thesis, I compiled the forecast population of the selected area by 2030. In the final part in order to achieve the objective I conducted interviews with key personnel in social services in the studied area. The conducted research has revealed several recommendations for the town Světlá. In the future, it would be appropriate to support outreach and outpatient services, and increasingly develop cooperation with existing non-profit organization that operate in the selected area. It is also necessary to resolve the issue in an appropriate manner of people at risk of social exclusion. By 2030, the increase in the number of people older than 65 years in the studied area almost doubled. With that will surely come the need to extend existing capabilities of social services. For the city, it follows in the next 15 years to take appropriate action in response to the social policy of the state. The current system of financing social services and the care allowance is assessed as ineffective and requires appropriate legislative adjustment, so that the network of social services in the Czech Republic in the future, is prepared for the expected demographic trends
