Social Security changes rules on the attribution of social support to people suffering from serious social exclusion

Following the Azorean Government concern to ensure the principle of social justice among citizens, namely in what regards Social Work policies and measures, Social Security regulates on the attribution of social support to people suffering from serious social exclusion and segregation.

The principle of social inclusion implies the adoption of positive measures, with active, preventive and customised features that aim at combating segregation and serious social exclusion causes, as well as at promoting human dignity.

Therefore, the State must ensure that the basic needs of the socially excluded individuals are satisfied, and must also promote the development of competences that lead to their gradual social inclusion, creating on them a sense of responsibility.
It is based on these principles that Social Security establishes the new rules for social support to individuals over 18 years old in situation of serious social exclusion and segregation.

The access to social support depends on the verified incapacity of the individuals to ensure the satisfaction of their basic needs and requires that the beneficiaries be available to actively participate in their own process of social inclusion, by developing several actions previously  agreed with the Case Manager and established in a social agreement, which must be fulfilled in order for them to receive the social support.

This measure comes from the need of extending social support to these individuals all over the Region, ensuring at the same time that its attribution is more discerning and demanding, as to follow a logic of justice to the remaining citizens.
