Popis On 1 January 2007, the Act No. 108/2006 Coll., on social services, entered into force, transforming to a significant extent the social service system at that time. After over a decade of reform attempts, new legislation was created, with its most significant contribution being the equalization of social service providers irrespective of their legal form. The monopoly of the state was limited, individual providers of social care started to “seek favour” of the socially weak, while the representatives of the non-governmental non-profit organizations started to gain significance. Similar processes are also reflected in empirical research (Irish, L.E., Salamon, L.M., & Simon, K.W., 2009). Since the introduction of this law, the area of social services has undergone major changes of organizational and financial nature. More than ten years after this turning point, the social service system can be considered more or less stable. It is therefore appropriate to ask if new social service providers have taken the opportunity to enter this hitherto closed market and have established themselves as an integral part of the whole system. The aim of the article is to define the position and role of individual social service providers using current data from 2019 from the Register of Social Service Providers (RSSP). This work presents the basic characteristics of social service providers in relation to their structure, the capacity of facilities, types of the provided social services, target groups and the availability of these services.
