This framework contract is a first step that brings together the orientations and the territorial diagnosis elaborated by the services of the state and those of the community.

The 20 and 21 May in Collectivity, which are composed of both community service technicians and government service technicians, have thus been organized in five workshops to target the issues in the five themes chosen: Educational attainment, housing, crime prevention, social support and health.
