Latvia -Social services not in a good shape -February 20, 2013

According to a report of the national Ombudsman the social services currently do not meet the needs of people with mental disabilities and adds that alternative services are accessible only to a small number of people. Therefore many with mental disabilities are forced to choose long-term social care and rehabilitation institutions. The report says that the management and personnel of social care centres should undergo immediate training.
