Social welfare is about supporting individuals and families in difficult life situations. It covers an extensive scope of services, from ad hoc financial and legal aid, to providing subsistence to those who are unable to sustain themselves. Warsaw's Social Welfare Centres (OPS) are assigned to individual districts. If you are in a difficult life situation, contact your district’s SWC to learn the type and level of support you quality for.
