[Autom. eng. transl.] The word proximity network indicates the presence of a support network, close to the subject / family that is in some condition of weakness, fragility The service of Social Custody - as it is developing in the Milanese reality - is trying to make effective and efficient promotion of networks - with a low access threshold - that explain different functions: 1. a rescue function from events / conditions that can seriously compromise the psycho-physical well-being of the subjects (elderly, parents with minor children, adults ...); 2. a function of passage (transport) of goods and services that allows to respond to a series of small problems of daily life; 3. a communication function between the different "nodes" of the formal services network, so as to allow - if necessary - greater timeliness and adequacy in the preparation of articulated intervention plans; 4. a socializing function (network of knowledge) between operators and users aimed at breaking the isolation and solitude, introducing "artifi cially" a new neighbor (the social custodian); 5. a generative function (natural coping networks) capable of rendering real natural coping networks present, ie close to the person in difficulty, able to catalyze themselves for a common interest or perceived good.
