Social counselling

Social work is an activity that helps a person or family solve their social problems. Social workers seek to enhance people’s capacity and opportunity to change and to address their own needs. They engage people as partners in the helping process: this does not undermine human dignity but encourages people to assume greater responsibility for themselves, their families and the society

Our social workers consult individuals and families who are partially or completely unable to take care of their own or their family well-being and have no possibility to take part in the social life of society. Social support includes:

  • providing information about the available options of the social welfare system and psychosocial services offered by our institution.
  • providing councelling to enhance the coping and problem-solving capabilities of clients (helping them find effective solutions to the family problems they encounter: parenting, education, health care, household management, conflict resolution, integration into the labor market and society, etc).
  • advocasy of clients interests in other institutions.
  • teaching social skills.

Social activity is aimed not only at managing social crises but also at preventing a set of interrelated personal, family or society problems from arising. Social workers seek to provide a person or family with the conditions which allow them to acquire and develop skills needed to solve social problems, build and maintain social relationships and combat social exclusion.
