In the context of the European socio-economic crisis and an increased risk of social exclusion, one of the most important tasks of social policy towards adults and the elderly / disabled is to promote personal skills, create conditions for implementation and strengthen personal attitudes. The problems identified in this project are the result of the analysis carried out with the partners during the meeting in Warsaw. Living in different realities, we all agreed that we need to include a group of weak individuals in society. The goal of this project is to define, exchange and implement good practices to include them.
Project aim is investigating and implementing at least 1-2 new approaches towards the inclusion of people in danger of social exclusion from partners’ organizations of different scope, suitable to implement in their everyday work and for benefit of their beneficiaries.
Expected outcomes of project will be: reports, all materials collected for “The Guide of Good Practice”, events video and videos of success stories of our participants.
Results of the project will be integration of participants of the project (professionally or socially) good practice exchange during the meetings, English language improvement, internationalization of the activities of organizations participating in the project and the possibility of establishing a network of organizations permanently cooperating with each other after the end of the project.
