Forthcoming policy developments 

The unification of the three social benefits in one unique payment for socially excluded people: the social inclusion aid is a policy adopted in 2016 and postponed each year because the social assistance system/institutions are not yet prepared to implement the new system. The use of the new social inclusion aid was postponed in December 2021 (the forth postponement) until September 2023.

No information on forthcoming policy developments regarding social services and youth work for youth social inclusion is available.
