Comunidad Activa is a project of the Welfare and Development Association aimed at vulnerable people, with special difficulty in finding work.
It offers a service of socio-occupational guidance and support to families that combines accompaniment to labor insertion as a central axis to promote social inclusion, with social support resources to guarantee the maintenance of itineraries and decent living conditions, accompanied by measures community social action.
The key objectives of the project are to provide support in the social, labor, training and psychological fields to those people who may find themselves in a vulnerable situation or at risk of social exclusion. In parallel to the accompaniment in the workplace, basic needs of food, training, housing, supplies or others that may appear to people linked to a work plan can be covered.
The main access route for users is direct referral from Municipal Social Services and other ABD services, although people derived from the Incorpora network of Obra Social La Caixa, of which Comunidad Activa is a part, can also participate.
The process begins with a reception session by a counselor who makes an initial assessment and continues a follow-up process in which accompaniment is offered in training (internal or external) and support in basic needs if detected; always aiming to get a job and keep it. At that time the intervention would be closed.
