Project Objectives and Activities

The Project focuses on the extremely excluded and marginalized group of people in Ukraine – people with psychosocial and/or intellectual disabilities living in social care homes. Project aims at improving quality of psychosocial rehabilitation services in social care homes for people with psychosocial and/or intellectual disabilities in Ukraine by raising capacities of service providers and other key stakeholders, such as NGOs, in Kyiv, Donetskyj and Poltavskyj regions.

Training of 60 persons in and around social care homes and other key stakeholders on psychosocial rehabilitation and community based services, as well as a study visit of 5 local stakeholders to a selected EU country, are among two main activities of this project.

Improving quality of services in social care homes by introducing psychosocial rehabilitation, human rights and community based services‘ principles will enhance the potential for inclusion of persons with disabilities into society and labour market.
