Social Welfare Profile

 

Social support is the perception and actuality that one is cared for, has assistance available from other people, and that one is part of a supportive social network.

Welfare is the provision of a minimal level of well-being and social support for citizens without current means to support basic needs. In most developed countries, welfare is largely provided by the government from tax income, and to a lesser extent by charities, informal social groups, religious groups, and inter-governmental organizations.
