Background:

In times of demographic change and limited public finances it becomes increasingly difficult for the public sector to maintain a reliable social service infrastructure in rural areas. Outward migration of young and well-qualified people further aggravates this challenge, and vulnerable groups at the risk of poverty and exclusion - such as older people, migrants, people with disabilities, families and single parents - are in danger of being left behind. It is therefore time to rethink the role of public and private social service providers. The project “SEMPRE – Social Empowerment in Rural Areas” explores end-user involvement in service development as one possible path for securing social welfare in rural areas of the Baltic Sea Region.
