Summary of the project

This project focuses on capacity building of local institutions and CSOs in the area of the community based integrated services (support groups, provision of legal aid, community events) for adults, children and youth from socially and economically disadvantaged families; and enabling adults and youth from socially and economically disadvantaged families to lead sustainable lives (support in preparation for employment).

Programme/Project objectives

This project aims to improve the level of social services provided in the community strongly affected by unemployment, poverty and other risks in order to reduce those parameters and create better opportunities for all social services beneficiaries. The project responds to the community needs and is therefore strongly supported by the City of Niš, social service centre and local CSOs. It is expected to result in capacity building of local institutions and CSOs in the area of the community based integrated services; development of integrated community based services (support groups, provision of legal aid, community events) for the adults, children and youth from socially and economically disadvantaged families; and capability of adults and youth from socially and economically disadvantaged families to lead sustainable life (support in preparation for employment).
