Abstract

The paper discusses modern approaches to social services in territorial communities. The structure of revenues and expenditures of local budgets of Ukraine by economic classification has been analysed. The state and requirements of the development of social services for a modern system of integrated social services in communities have been investigated. Also, the components of the model of integrated social services have been considered and the principles that were adhered to when creating it have been described.The integrated social service model is based on the collaboration of various institutions and social service providers, transforming them into a single coherent system. It aims to improve collaboration and partnerships among all stakeholders to build capacity and achieve common goals. A complex, well-established system for the provision of social services leads to duplication of efforts and a lack of individual planning, hinders the integration of all services in the development of service delivery plans. It also does not allow to properly analyse the reasons and poor coordination of the practice of paperwork and organization of social benefits. The integrated social services model seeks to correct these shortcomings and offer a convenient alternative to both provider staff and clients.The promotion of an integrated system of social services will not only improve the lives of certain categories of the population and help to eliminate the old Soviet system of providing these services, but it will also allow monitoring the effectiveness of the provision of social services based on the norms of social responsibility of recipients of funds and the client-centrism of social protection agencies. Its essence lies in the establishment of activities at various levels and the provision of an effective approach to solving problem situations of residents of territorial communities.The data obtained as a result of the analysis will form the basis for the development of appropriate content-technological and educational-methodological support for the retraining of social workers in Ukraine.
