Quality Improvement of Social Services, Lubelskie.

Topic : Enhanced social security, Health, Social services for specific target groups

Budget : CHF 5'171'509

Project phase : Phase 1

Description : The programme is focused on the improvement of quality of infrastructure and services provided in social care institutions in the Lubelskie Voivodeship in order to enhance living conditions of residents of these institutions. The programme targets elderly people, mentally and physically disabled as well as youths deprived of appropriate parental assistance and directly contributes to promote social inclusion of disadvantaged groups.

Background : Social assistance centres, together with special education centres, are the most widespread form of institutionalised social care in Poland. As the population grows older, demand for such care is bound to increase. However, the quality of facilities and the services provided show important discrepancies between Poland and other European countries and are low in a high proportion of institutions in the Lubelskie Voivodeship. Those institutions not meeting the binding legal standards are currently undergoing remedy programmes and were supposed to reach standards by end 2010. However, these are basic standards and do not allow to properly take into account the needs of patients as well as staff.

Lubelskie as one of the poorest Polish regions is characterised by negative demographic trends and a high share of population at retirement age (17%).

Objectives : The goal of the programme is to enhance the living conditions for residents in social assistance and special education centres in the Lubelskie Voivodeship by increasing the quality of services provided. This will be achieved, on one hand, by improving the infrastructure and equipment of these institutions, and on the other hand by enhancing the professional qualifications of the relevant staff by conducting trainings and education measures.
