The Ombudsman for Children added that the technology developed in the Moscow Region to accept orphans from the Donbass into families will be used in other regions, today the Moscow, Kaluga, Tula, Rostov, Voronezh and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrugs are ready to do this.
The Moscow region has extensive experience placing children in foster families. Since 2013, all 44 orphanages have closed, the last 7 in 2021. Nearly 2,000 children, 97% of all orphans have found parents.
There are also 6 centers in the region in which orphans and children from broken families live until they are placed in nursing homes (no more than three months): Constellation in Rosa, Dovery in Shelkovo, Family and House in Orekhovo-Zuevo, “Transfiguration” “in Yegoryevsk, “Inspiration” in Kolomna and “Fidgets” in Balashikha. Schools have been opened to train parents, they are helped in registering guardianship. Each foster family has a trustee, digital profiles, showing the conditions in which the child lives, how he studies, how they take care of his health and development.
Since February of this year, 25.6 thousand citizens of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the LPR (including 7.6 thousand children), who were forced to come to the Moscow Region, have applied to the social security authorities of the Moscow Region. More than 1.1 thousand people, including 482 children, are accommodated in 8 temporary accommodation centers (TACs). A secretary is assigned to each family from among the social workers (45 in total), who keep in constant contact with them, help arrange children in schools and kindergartens. Employees of the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation in the region go to TAPs to apply for SNILS, employees of the Migration Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs – to complete registration.
Last year, in the Moscow region, more than 27,000 elderly and disabled persons were presented by social workers in semi-stationary form, 21,000 – in stationary form, and 50,000 – at home. Urgent social services were provided to more than 36,000 people in need, and 23,000 elderly citizens of the village were handed over to medical organizations in the area. Nearly 90,000 seniors are participating in the Active Longevity Project.
And there are 53 social “mobile battalions” operating in the region, which served 13 thousand people in 2021, 152 cars of the “social taxi service” (7,7 thousand services were provided). There is a “social nurse service” (the service is provided for 514 residents).
In the Moscow region, 8 workshops were opened, where young people with disabilities receive labor and professional skills (219 people and 11 employees are trained). And this year, the same sites for the elderly and disabled began to operate, where they could learn labor trades. The first facility was launched in Orekhovo-Zuyevo, with plans to increase its number to 10.
For parents of disabled children, the project “Partial rehabilitation center at home” is being implemented. Doctors, defectologists, and psychologists come to the family with equipment. They teach, leave the equipment, and later accompany the family. Since 2021, 3 such centers have been operating in the region: in Yegoryevsk, Sergiev Posad and Orekhovo-Zoivo.
Convenient digital solutions are also offered in the social field. More than 200 services are offered electronically today. Convenient services work, for example, an electronic certificate is issued to large families. Principles of work of the Social Treasury in the Moscow Region: proactive services are carried out (appointment at the beginning of the life state, without requests): payment of an additional pension of up to 17 thousand rubles, compensation for housing and communal services (for large families, disabled people, pensioners), payments to schools. All this empties social services and saves time for residents. Back in 2020, up to 3 million people in the region applied for face-to-face social services, and now, thanks to the “number”, the number has halved.
