Italian term or phrase: interventi di tipo assistenziale e previdenziale
... gli interventi di tipo assistenziale e previdenziale che il nostro Sistema della Sicurezza Sociale garantisce ...

"interventi" in this context is difficult to translate as is "previdenziale" when immediately followed by "Sicurezza Sociale". Any ideas would be much appreciated!!

welfare and social security services
Explanation:
the welfare and social security services provided by our Social Security System

don't worry too much about the fact that "social security" is repeated in the sentence: for one thing here they mean different things (first a description of the services provided, and then the name of the system), also, usually repetitions are much more acceptable in English then in Italian.
