The project concerns community residential estates in the Białystok district of Starosielce, where families unable to overcome a crisis due to not being given adequate support and being overwhelmed with problems, are resettled. According to the Białystok police headquarters statistics, in 2019 there were 231 domestic incidents, which is an average of one every one and a half days. Most adults are out of work or find short-term work (mainly men). According to Białystok Family Aid Center (MOPR) figures, on that estate, in 2019, 149 families (76%) received financial aid, and this included 365 children. There are no new investments or greenery on the estate, and the residential tower blocks, playgrounds, and spaces on the estate are in a state of disrepair and are not refurbished.
The project addresses the problem of exclusion, exacerbated by the ‘ghettoization’ of marginalized persons. Under the project, we will aim to build a model, local reintegration system.
We will create three self-help groups for adults – each of approximately ten people. Young people aged 13-20 (six people) will be included in a scheme to make them self-reliant. 15 families will be given support in the form of assisting personnel. We will also organize eight programs to activate the local community according to their own identified needs. The support provided will take the form of individual aid, partnership, and empowerment. The project personnel will be given training and will be assisted through supervision.
20 vulnerable persons will take part in the measures. Approximately 100 people will take part in measures to activate the local community.
The main result is expected to be an improvement in the situation of families, stimulating the potential of the local community, and providing young people who leave the facility with the skills necessary to begin life as self-reliant adults.
