“Support the Ministry of Veterans Affairs in Social and Psychological Rehabilitation of Conflict-Affected Population” Project
The Ukrainian government requested PCU’s assistance in developing a number of projects focused on enhancing national bodies’ capacity to provide psychological rehabilitation for conflict affected people.
The Ministry of Veterans’ Affairs (MVA) is the main body in the central executive system, which ensures the formation and implementation of state policy in the field of social protection and rehabilitation of veterans and their family members, in particular providing psychological rehabilitation, social and professional adaptation, and employment. The MVA has its regional structures in all oblasts of Ukraine. They ensure effective implementation of MVA’s tasks at the regional level and co-operate with local self-government bodies, institutions, enterprises, NGOs and the veteran community on issues within the scope of responsibility of the MVA. Local authorities identify veterans’ needs and procure relevant services to assist them. They use funds from the local budget, as well as disbursements from the MVA.
In 2021, the PCU will continue its support to the MVA in social protection and psychological rehabilitation of veterans and their family members. The PCU will equip the MVA with discussion-based road map for local authorities and social service providers in amalgamated communities for psycho-social rehabilitation of veterans. This will include organizing a series of regional round tables to collect existing best practices and recommendations for developing the road map.
The PCU will hire two national experts to collect existing best practices and recommendations in providing psycho-social assistance to veterans in the amalgamated communities. Based on the identified information, the experts will produce draft recommendations on how to organize psycho-social rehabilitation for veterans at local level. The PCU will task the national experts also to integrate gender equality aspects (e.g., different circumstances / experiences of women and men) in the draft recommendations.
Please note that this is a consultancy assignment of temporary nature. The consultant will be required to work from home with the ability to travel for conducting trainings and round tables.

• Collect existing best practices and recommendations in providing psycho-social assistance to veterans in the amalgamated communities;
• Produce draft recommendations on how to organize psycho-social rehabilitation for veterans at local level;
