CO.RE.

COmmunity-shared REsponsibility to promote disadvantaged people’s inclusion path

Duration 01.09.2011 – 28.02.2013

Financed by the European Commission (DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion). Pilot project : All-inclusive cooperation between public authorities, companies and social enterprises in favour of social inclusion and integration into the labour market. The CO.RE. proposal tackles the issues, common to all involved territories, of youth unemployment and social exclusion of specific target groups, and proposes an innovative governance model for social inclusion policies based on participatory processes which mobilise local economic, social and political resources. The proposed local partnership model builds upon the notion of local actors’/stakeholders’ responsibility and accountability. Its focus is on local development and employment policies and it is aimed at creating a shared model for a community-shared agreement. By means of transnational policy seminars, local working tables, information and awareness-raising measures the involved communities in Massa Marittima (IT), Seville (ES), Porto (PT), Sofia (BG) and Belfast (UK) will be activated in information and communication campaigns. Different targeted measures will be put in place so to meet the information and communication needs of the “broad public”, the main “local stakeholders”, and the potential “beneficiaries”. The local animation programmes will be functional to the set-up and signature of the local “community-shared agreement” in each partner Country, which will set the terms and conditions of the CORE governance model and which will be formalised in local “memorandum of understanding”. The signatory actors will activate their services and launch the model piloting by implementing personalised accompanying measures for beneficiaries. These will be actively involved in their own personal development process that may imply: guidance and counselling, further training and education schemes, tailor-made (micro-) credit or other grants solutions supporting self-entrepreneurial initiatives, etc. The results of experimentation in the 5 pilot territories will be described in the project final publication and presented in the final conference.
