Social inclusion – Developing the municipal service for elderly people and disabled children in Poti

Östhammar municipality and Poti municipality in Georgia has the intension to set up a 2-year municipal partnership to start a day care center for elderly people which will be renovated. One important part will be to involve the civil society actors and Youth council in citizen dialogue about the content and engagement in the daily services. We will also train the social workers in order to raise the competence which will contribute to a good quality in the activities and services.

We will also together with the staff develop the service and education in a day care center for disabled children 6-18 years by competence building but also provide them with devices for rehabilitation and educational programs.

The project is about social inclusion of vulnerable groups and to offer them quality in municipal care, activities and daily services.

It contributes to develop the local democracy.
