According to the Inowrocławski District Development Strategy for 2020, disability is the second most important social problem in the Inowrocławski District, and is the third most important cause of hardship in families. People with disabilities, of which there are approximately 10-13%, are one of the most important groups for which intervention is undertaken.
The project addresses the need for initiatives that combine support measures (psychological and rehabilitation) for people with disabilities and their families with inclusion, integration, and educational measures.
For people with disabilities, we have planned daily life essential guide self-reliance workshops, ergo- and art therapy workshops, animal therapy and dog therapy, and a series of rehabilitation treatments provided by a physiotherapist and female massage therapist. For carers, we will conduct sociotherapy workshops. We will offer all participants group therapy sessions. As integration and inclusion measures, we will organize a range of meetings: integration meetings with social workers at Social Welfare Centers, with organizations dealing with particular disease entities, with the local community, and with people with infantile cerebral palsy who practice civic journalism. We will also launch a thematic helpline concerning rehabilitation.
The participants in the project will be people with neurological conditions and movement disorders (children, young people, and young adults) and their carers in the Inowrocławski district.
Due to the measures, 15 people with disabilities will improve their psychomotor ability, and 13 carers of people with disabilities will improve their mental health. All of the participants will learn more about rehabilitation and providing support for self-reliance of people with disabilities.
