Seoul will take direct responsibility of people’s health by opening the door of the ‘Seoul Social Service Agency’ to the citizens of Seoul. Long-term recuperation, activity support for the disabled, childcare, and other social services that were handled by private sectors will be offered firsthand by the community for fortified public concern, better service quality, and improved treatment of professionals.
The main projects of the ‘Seoul Social Service Agency’ include ▴firsthand operation of national and public social welfare facilities, ▴installment and operation of ‘comprehensive home centers ,’ and ▴support for private service institutions.
In January, for the official launching of the Seoul Social Service Agency, Seoul organized a board member nomination committee and publicly recruited nominees for the board. As a result, one director, six non-executive directors, and one non-executive auditor were elected.
The founding ceremony is scheduled to be held on March 11 and will be followed by staff employment and service preparations for official start of the service in the latter half of the year.
