If the official website of the city council or a special website provides for applying online for a place or service in the city’s social welfare institutions this city has a high degree of transparency.

Drohobych is the only one of the 100 largest cities in Ukraine to receive the maximum score for the implementation of this indicator in the field of social services in the assessment of transparency in 2019. Here, all social welfare institutions provide an opportunity to order the service online, as well as track the status of such an application.

In 6 more cities it is possible:

 — to order a place or service in social welfare institutions and track the status of the application 

or

 — order a place or service without tracking the status of the application.

Among such cities are:

  • Berdiansk
  • Pokrovsk
  • Uman
  • Mariupol
  • Myrhorod
  • Myrnohrad

Unfortunately, in all other 93 of Ukraine’s 100 largest cities, it is not yet possible to order a place or service in social welfare institutions on the official website of the city council or other resource.

We hope that the new Transparency Ranking 2020 will contain fewer cities of this kind, and it will be easier and more convenient to receive social services in Ukraine.

In Drohobych, all social welfare institutions provide the opportunity to order the service online, as well as track the status of such an application.
