Mapping of social resources in Bulgaria

In the period of July and August 2017, two mapping experts visited over 100 different social structures (social service providers, public authorities with management functions, methodological and training centers in the social sphere, etc.) from Vratsa, Pleven, Veliko Tarnovo, Rousse, Silistra and Dobrich districts. As a result, 129 records were collected in the database, which continues to be enriched and will also include social structures from Vidin and Montana districts. The database will be translated and uploaded to this site in Bulgarian, English and Romanian and will also be reflected on an interactive map.
