The Carinthian Government - Department 4 – Social Affairs and Society (AT)

This authority covers most of the social topics in the Region of Carinthia: disabilities, social security, child/youth welfare and youth protection. It plans, finances and steers the field of child/youth welfare. The Carinthian government takes a lead in giving youth care a place on the European stage, chairing the Youth Care Platform, a collaboration between youth care providers, their umbrellas and national/regional/local authorities with legal responsibilities in the Youth Care sector in EU-member states.

The Carinthian Government is pilot partner of this project and plays an important role in the dissemination activities via the Youth Care Platform.
