Detailed description of the project activities in accordance with the tasks

The day care unit for disabled people and senior citizens of the Belynichi District Social Services Center is attended by 25 disabled people and 15 senior citizens.
This category of people often feels insecure and unwanted. Their involvement in social and cultural activities and moral support will help them overcome the feeling of uselessness.

There is a strong need in this project at the Belynichi Social Services Center. The project was preceded by a sociological survey to assess the need to develop it for a specific targeted group. The results of the survey showed that people that attend the day care unit for disabled people and senior citizens have the need for communication, mutual understanding, help, support, and recreation. The survey also identified the main areas of activity as part of the project. These are visits to festivals and concerts, excursions, efforts to equip a gym and a kitchen.

Project justification

Nowadays, we hear a lot about charity, the need to pay more attention to people, especially to those who need it more than others. These are people with limited health abilities, people of social vulnerable groups, those segments of the people who need understanding, protection and social inclusion. These people need assistance in socialization and adaptation. People with disabilities are full members of our community, and it lies in our power to help them integrate into society. Creating equal opportunities for people with disabilities as a social policy suggests providing access to education and work and also to various forms of culture, cultural and leisure activities. This activity is one of the essential resources for optimizing social activity of people with disabilities, which can stimulate the process of socialization and self-realization of people.
