ON THE PROJECT SUPPORTED BY CIVICA MOBILITAS

IDENTIFICATION, COUNSELLING AND REFERRING PERSONS AT SOCIAL RISK

BACKGROUND

According to the register of the Centre for Social Work, there are around 800 beneficiaries at social risk at the level of the Municipality of Butel and additional 560 people are beneficiaries of social welfare. This figure is irrelevant because of the challenges that the employees face, such as insufficient number of official cars, many cases, few professionals, insufficient resources and similar issues, and thus there is no possibility to continuously upgrade the data, as well as follow and inspect the changes with the beneficiaries. Therefore, there is a need to inspect, check and maintain a database of the beneficiaries who have a real need of help and assistance, i.e. to filter the most endangered group of citizens in this area. The idea is to cooperate with CSR Skopje, i.e. to use the public information, conduct field visits to see the actual situation of the beneficiaries. In agreement with the beneficiaries, there will be data collected on the type of social risk that pertains to them. According to the data, there will be a selection of persons that are at high social risk and persons that need help and support to overcome their existential crisis.
