Examples of activities to be carried out are:

It should be noted that all the services in question are aimed at disadvantaged people as identified by the targets of Investment Priority 9 a) and are provided by offer units also managed privately but within the framework of a public system of recognition of services and participation in the operating cost, which is commensurate with the cost of producing the same services on the basis of structural, organisational and functional standards imposed by the relevant regional regulations.
