Social and child protection provide and implement measures and programs for individuals and families with unfavorable personal or family circumstances, which include prevention, assistance in satisfying the basic existential needs and support.Accordingly, the goal of social and child protection is improvement of the quality of life and empowerment for an independent and productive life of individuals and families. Namely, due to the negative economic situation in the whole world, not only in Montenegro, the position of individuals and families became significantly worse than earlier. Poverty is a global social problem that most developed countries are facing, so even Montenegro is no exception. The data shows that the global economic crisis in the last few years negatively affected the economic development of the country, and also caused an increase in poverty which is reflected in increased unemployment rate, increased consumer basket, reduced salaries, increased number of beneficiaries of material family support, etc. In all municipalities the number beneficiaries of material support is increasing, a total of nearly 23.000 people receive this type of assistance. Due to this situation, it was necessary to take certain measures and activities so that the aforementioned goal could be achieved.

Government of Montenegro has reformed the system of social and child protection, in which the emphasis is placed on strengthening social cohesion in the country. It should be emphasized that the social cohesion of society depends on the degree of economic, political and every other form of freedom and equality of its members. Where there is no such equality, there is neither social cohesion – a distinct social stratification is formed, which is represented through the visible inequality embodied through the imbalance of rich and poor, powerful and dependent. Precisely for this reason, the main goal of the Strategy of development of social and child protectionis to strengthen social cohesion, and then to establish such a state in which human rights will be guaranteed, where there will be equal opportunities for all, and, at the same time, taking into account the most vulnerable groups, which should result in increased social inclusion and reduced discrimination.

The principles, on which social and child protection is based, are: respect of the integrity and dignity of users, prohibition of discrimination of users, providing information to users, individual user access, active user participation in designing, selecting and using rights from social and child protection, respecting the best interests of users, prevention of institutionalization and availability of services in the least restrictive environment, pluralism of services and service providers, partnerships and association of different activities and programs providers, especially at the local level and transparency.
