Summary/Abstract: This article presents results of work, conducted within an international research project CITISPYCE – combating inequalities through innovative social practices of, and for, young people in cities across Europe. The research work was conducted in Fakulteta and Hristo Botev – two of the most marginalised and socio-economically deprived neighbourhoods in Sofia with an above average share of young people. The socio-economic status of two areas is presented, and the available social infrastructure relating to employment, education, health care, social assistance, leisure, culture, and religion is analysed. The focus is on the social inequalities affecting the young people in Fakulteta and Hristo Botev, and the available innovative social programmes and projects combating these inequalities.
