Target groups:

The range of aid available for families in the Płock area is quite meagre, and amounts to only centers for people with addictions and the Psychological and Pastoral Center, which is run by the Catholic Church. Not everyone wishes to take advantage of aid in this form. Many families come to us when a marriage is in crisis, or someone loses their job or is facing eviction, and in addition they deal with problems raising children. These families, when going through crisis, are incapable of dealing with their problems or their own emotional limitations. Also, they do not know their rights and are unable to defend their interests by themselves.
The main aim of the project will be to provide support for and make more self-reliant members of 20 families in the Płock area and Płock district who face social exclusion.
We intend to organize one-on-one meetings with educational specialists and psychologists for particular family members, parents, and children approaching adulthood. The meetings will be intervention in times of crisis, mediation sessions, and child-raising consultations. The participants will also have available to them legal consultations, and young people will be able to make use of training on civil rights. We will create support groups: for parents (to improve child-raising skills, sharing know-how) and for young people (improving self-esteem, dealing with difficult domestic conditions, improving the sense of solidarity in a group). We will organize a “Greater awareness – greater self-reliance” conference.
As a result, 50 vulnerable people in 20 families will learn to make use of aid institutions, understand the cause of their problems, and become more independent in making decisions about their lives.
