|Description||Social services are currently at the centre of interest amongst experts, in terms of both the providers of services and the clients, the consumers of social services. On the national level, social services are an important part of state, self-government, and non-state activities. The most widespread tool of social services in the Czech Republic is day care; it is mostly used by seniors. In light of the current problems that are the result of an ageing population, the efficiency of this tool is frequently discussed, mainly at the local level. The aim of this paper is to assess the current situation in providing social services at the municipal level, using the city of Brno as an example, and to consider future trends in developing this significant social services tool.|
