Gasore aims to identify and seek best practices at EU level to promote return to employment and integration into social life of People who faced a professional or personal “life accident”.
The project meets a clear need expressed in the “Bordeaux Objectives” (cohesion and social equity) and in the EU Strategy 2020 (better care for the underprivileged). This need became even more a priority in view of the crisis experienced today in Europe.
Target groups of the project are for people who :
– were made redundant for economic reasons, especially in disaster areas,
– had an accident or had been sick for a long time,
– had a nervous breakdown,
– need to return to work due to financial or family matters (example : mothers who have raised their children).
The project Gasore is leaded by 6 Partners from diverse and complementary organizations.
– a study phase of the European contexts,
– a training kit which objective is to accompany the re-mediation and social work of target groups. This kit is composed of six specific modules (assessment of needs, mobilization and identification of interests, project feasibility, implementation of the Action Plan, mediation and re-mediation, and finally, support and return to work or social life),
– and a specific module training for trainers.
The Project will be structured around five meetings to:
– lead a collective project combining the skills and experiences of partners,
– develop tested and validated tools, which, once they will have been translated by Partners, will be disseminated effectively (especially via the Internet). The Project includes as well the valuation of results, which will be a part of the Project’s final report.
