Project LLI-550 „Social inclusion of vulnerable groups in Zarasai-Daugavpils cross-border region through development of integrated social care network“ (Valued people)
Zarasai district municipality with Daugavpils city municipal authority Social Service and Zarasai District Antazavė social service centre “Kartų namai” implement a project aimed at developing a new integrated social care network which should increase accessibility and efficiency of social services in cross-border region Zarasai–Daugavpils.
Traditionally, social services in Lithuania and Latvia have been provided to people facing serious difficulties. The new social policy suggests that by providing timely interventions for vulnerable groups, many dire consequences can be avoided.
During project implementation residential institutions such as children’s homes in Daugavpils (Latvia) and Zarasai (Lithuania) are transforming, adapting vacated or renovated premises for older people with special needs – a vulnerable group whose needs were neglected for decades. New equipment and facilities, as well as educational activities, promote the adaptation of people with special needs to the needs of a changing society and promote their integration.
Training of staff in social services institutions and acquisition of good practice in foreign countries will enable social workers to apply modern methods to the care of elderly people or people with special needs.
It is planned to assess the social infrastructure of Zarasai district and Daugavpils city, and to draw on the strengths of each partner by bringing together budget institutions and the non-governmental sector during this project.
The date of completion of the project is June 2023.
Project is financed by the European Regional Development Fund; total project value is 705810,00 euros.
