Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The new welfare arrangements that emerge from the rapid and profound transformations that currently characterize the company lead to a rethinking of the recognition and enhancement of the subjects present in the corporate context. In particular, families and third sector organizations can be strategic actors for the implementation of practices that favor an effective personal and social well-being. Some services for the family present peculiar characteristics that allow to verify, by empirical means, the validity of these statements. These are services for the family carried out by subjects belonging to the third sector. In short, two strategies emerge that the third sector can adopt to respond more effectively to the needs of families. On the one hand, the organizations that create networks of stable relationships to realize complex services, as are all those who turn to the family, manage to share projects and strategies and thereby to convey an improvement of the interventions, in terms of the effectiveness, improvement that would not be punishable at the level of the individual organization or entity. On the other hand, the ability to activate and bind families together in association networks makes it possible to respond in a particularly effective way to the needs of families, contributing to the process of renewing welfare systems, countering the culture of assistance and promoting that of personalization, being the family it is the privileged place of personal care.
