In different European countries, the European Social Fund agencies are launching calls for transnational collaboration. In Belgium, Flanders different projects were approved to go to the second phase. In this phase the Flemish organisations are looking for European partners, who are interested in the same topic and who want to collaborate, with funds from their own local ESF agency.
De Biehal is looking for European partners, to collaborate around a project idea on the use of social employment in the sectors assisted living and elderly care.
This project focuses on two sectors, having looked at some urgent issues from both perspectives and willing to connect them: social economy (social employment) and assisted living and elderly care.
The questions raised are the following:
How can we adapt or break up assignments of the caretakers (so) to avoid distraction because of non-explicit tasks of care in order to focus on their real task(s)?
How can we, being social employment, take over these assignments and how can we facilitate the assisted living and elderly care? Which initiatives and assignments can possibly develop?
How can we integrate these assignments into the labour market?
In other words: which adaptions are necessary, which cooperations are needed to start up and how can we let take over these tasks by the employees of a target group with a bigger distance to the labour market?
This project aims to answer these questions and the results of both sectors will be compared afterwards and in order to formulate a number of recommendations for the policy, based on these results.
If you are interested in this topic and you would like to join this initiative, get quickly in touch with the AER Secretariat!
Deadline for expression of interests is 16 December.
