Partnerships for Social Inclusion: Integrated Minimum Income and Social Services Programmes
This report assesses integrated social inclusion programmes for people receiving or qualifying for minimum income support in Europe. It presents how social benefits such as minimum income can be combined with social services programmes to ensure the effective social inclusion of people who may be at risk of poverty or social exclusion. It reviews existing European and national social inclusion policies and provides examples of local integrated social inclusion programmes. As part of this analysis, it also looks at reasons for non-take up of benefits and how access to social support can be improved. This report is based on a literature review, social services’ responses to an European Social Network (ESN) questionnaire circulated in April and May 2022 as well as inputs collected at our annual seminar held in Bordeaux, France, on 26 – 27 September 2022.
