INTEGRATED SYSTEM OF SOLIDARY SOCIAL ECONOMY IN CZĘSTOCHOWA

(FINALIST 2018) Better social services: a system that allows residents to assist in the development of better services for citizens.

The Integrated System of Solidary Social Economy aims to increase the participation of residents in the development of social services for people at risk of social exclusion. Together with cooperating social assistance institutions, employment services and social economy organisations, each residents’ situation is brought into focus, on a case-by-case basis.

The project has received awards at the provincial level, for both innovation and for diversifying funding strategies in order to implement the project’s objectives.

As part of the plan, there have been training sessions on raising the standard of work and increasing professionalism in the field of economic self-empowerment. Further cooperation with social economy entities has been developed, and the model of solving social problems collaboratively has been promoted in the wider community. This projects gives a holistic view of people at risk of exclusion, persons with disabilities, the homeless, and those inheriting unemployment who are reluctant to take up professional activity. It is a response to the needs diagnosed by all project stakeholders, as well as a response to the needs of those taking part in the programme. The project therefore plays a key role in the city’s social politics.
