The first training of the project FATI in Cornwall

Jun 20, 2016Education and Training

The first training of the project FATI in CornwallThe Centre for Creative Development “Danilo Dolci” is partner of the FATI “Family Trainer International – network to empower families at risk and single parents”, project coordinated by the German organisation called Naturfreunde Thüringen. Together with CSC there are also Point Europa (UK), STRIM (Poland), Mihai Eminescu National College (Romania), Magisztrátus Alapítvány (Hungary).

The project aims at increasing the skills of the social workers who support families at-risk such as single-parent families or families from disadvantaged areas.

The project partners met from the 16th to the 21st of May 2016 in Cornwall (UK) to do a training with the operators who support the household sector in the partner countries. The training was held at Maker Heights, a site of historical interest around the hills of Torpoint, opposite Plymouth. For six days, four operators from each partner country exchanged good practices, ideas and methodologies to organise support and recreational activities for families at risk such as single-parent families, families with migrant background, or coming from disadvantaged areas.

The meeting also was an opportunity to discuss the next stages of the project. Partners will meet again in early October in Germany to put into practice the methods developed during the meeting in Cornwall and it is expected that partners will bring to Germany five participants per country, in particular families with few opportunities.

The project will last three years and it is funded by the Erasmus + programme, Key Action 2 – Strategic Partnership in the field of adult education.
