Title: OUR activity on +! Promotion of EU funds for working with people at risk of social exclusion
Project implementation: 01/06/2019-31/10/2019
Place: Silesian Museum in Katowice
Co-financing: Ministry of Investment and Development in Poland, program: Together on European Funds
Co-financing amount: PLN 16.060
As part of the project, we plan to implement the event, which will thus be divided into two blocks: (1) informative and promotional seminar + (2) workshops of an educational nature, serving the exchange of good practices, combined with expert advice. The goal of this event is a holistic approach to the issues of people with disabilities and the possibility of their support under the national and regional funds of the European Union in Poland. It is worth emphasizing that both people present during the seminar and people moderating the workshop part will be people with disabilities who are also professionally active and operate in the area of social work of NGOs. We plan to invite representatives of organizations that have been successfully implementing such projects and can share their experience as part of the exchange of good practices and plan to continue/expand their activities. We have decided that this event will be guided by the idea of the borderline of support for people with disabilities and support for social innovations. The seminar that informs and promotes funds, as well as workshops to familiarize people from different backgrounds, will be organized to encourage a wide range of KPO and RPO funds, implementation of new solutions to improve the availability of products and services, e.g. people with disabilities or older people with limited mobility or perception.
The event is co-financed from the European Union Cohesion Fund under the Operational Program Technical Assistance 2014-2020
