The aim of the project is to provide support to municipalities and communities in South-Estonia, by training, mentoring, and supporting volunteer support persons and case managers.
The broader aim of the project is to strengthen communities by training community members who are willing to support refugees or other people in need in their community. The project will help municipalities to fulfil their obligation to provide supportive social services.
The target group of the project are support persons who are already helping or will helping Ukrainian refugees or other people in vulnerable situations in the local communities on a voluntary basis. The plan is to train two groups of support persons, each with 15-16 participants, up to a total of 32 people. The proposed training will be compact (50 hours, 9 training days) and consist supervised practice as well.
The training curriculum will cover all the areas needed to help the client and will be based on the CARe methodology. CARe is focused on the quality of life of people who are mentally and socially in a vulnerable situation. The methodology is a tool for professional care workers to support clients in achieving their desired quality of life.
The indirect target group of the project is Ukrainian war refugees and other vulnerable members of the community in need of a support person. During the supervised practice following the training, up to 32 people in need will be supported.
