(ASB) as the respective project partner, have decided to propose a comprehensive and integrated project in order to increase the influx of social welfare services in the cross-border region of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The project is designed to create opportunities for co-operating and coordinating with CSOs who are capable to take over specific parts of their workload so that multiple benefits will be achieved, starting from improved social service provision to the beneficiaries -which is the primarily goal-, up to the reduction of workload for the Centres for Social Welfare and the establishment of targeted and specialized CSOs who will perform the task more competently.
