Project Description

According to bank documents, the project aims to improve the effectiveness of the Family Social Support Program (ASDEP), Turkey's case management intervention and bring it to scale. As a key element to strengthening Turkey’s social safety net system, the case management approach is intended to complement the supply of existing social benefits and services by increasing access of poor and vulnerable households including refugees. The intervention will contribute to empower eligible households to be self-sufficient and capable of accessing available services when necessary, and participate as active members of the society.
