Project summary:

The number of Slovenian families facing social exclusion is growing. The challenge is to establish collaboration with families that cannot find suitable help in existing programmes. The aim of this project is to mobilize family members' resources to take a more active approach to solving the situation at hand. The goals are: to develop a model for helping families in a community; to educate professionals and prepare them to work in the field of family social work, kinesiology and physiotherapy; to cooperate with families to create the desired changes; and to implement knowledge into practice. The project will benefit 20 participating families, 50 adults included in the exercise to increase mobility and promote an active lifestyle, and 37 students participating in the project. The project will also benefit other professionals and students by transferring the results into educational programmes. The Norwegian university Høgskolen i Sør-Trøndelag, will participate with knowledge and experience which will help implement the model of social work with families in Slovenian communities. The partnership also opens up the opportunity for long-term cooperation between faculties.
