The poverty situation in which so many families are currently in our country compels us to develop new forms of vulnerability attention and risk of social exclusion. We believe an effective, efficient and transformative response is the only way to reverse this situation. That’s why we set in motion a program that assure child's protection and their families.
What is #Invulnerables ?
• Develop and implement a standards model to offer improvement opportunities to those in most disadvantage.
• Break down the poverty circles that families and kids are suffering.
• Create a collaborative work net formed by public and private corporations.
Why in Manlleu?
Due to the worrying child poverty figures register in our population, Manlleu has been in one of the eight cities selected to being part of the #INVOULNERABLE program. But it has also been selected because it has provided a social environment supportive and involved, which contributes to appropriate conditions to enhance the actual situation.
The institution responsible to coordinate the program is Fundació Projecte i Vida alongside Social Services Department of Manlleu City Council.
The beneficiary families
Beneficiary families are selected by Social Services Department and the third sector corporation following a preset specific economic criterion. It has to be an under-aged, at least, to meet the minimum criteria required.
Families commitments to guarantee the permanence into the program:
• Attend the proposed activities offered by the Social Services
• Allow access to the place of residence
• Take part of the ongoing monitoring work.
