We expect the following specific impacts:
At regional level we expect the opportunity to open discussion tables focused on the homeless question with other organizations working on our same field and with the institutions.
At European level there will be recommended some priorities in social & health policy through a document presented to the Commissioner of Employment and Social affairs.
How will you measure the previously mentioned impacts?
We will measure the impact expected on the partecipant through the analysis of the diffusion and the utilization of the tools built during the project and of the good practices evidenced.
The organization of meetings in regions to bring as many actors together . The number of participants of this event can show as an indicator of how much the theme of the project will be disseminated. In addition, the number of press articles, the visitors of websites and the frequenting of relevant forums of social media more meaningful indicators that provide information on the effectiveness of the project and its activities .
We will measure the impact expected at regional level through the number of tables to discuss and share the project's results realized.
We will measure the impact on the institutions through the number of public meetings will be organized and the opportunities we will realize to discuss and share the project's results in the istitutional seats.
Another indicator will be contacts resulting from the project work and people and institutions have achieved in other parts of Europe.
To whom will you disseminate the project results inside and outside your organisation? Please define in particular your target audience(s) at local/regional/national/EU level and motivate your choice.
The target groups of the dissemination are various:
In detail the activities to be implemented under the action of dissemination will be:
The project aims at the dissemination of actions and tools that will raise the awareness of the complexity of homeless and refugee conditions and preprare the professionals to give adequate responses to their needs. The dissemination of the project will become, therefore, an opportunity to disseminate values and information on the approach to these complex problems.
The individual partners and the network itself will be vehicles to spread information and trainning tools that will help professionals in their efforts to fight social exclusion.
Information about the project will be disseminated in a careful way through the website of the project and of each of the partners, giving attention to the various stages and actions of the project.
The dissemination of different materials (paper and digital) Profile form, Manual, Guidelines and the training curriculum represent a range of possibilities of diffusion of the overall project design. These products and all information will be disseminated in the different languages of the partners.
The process of training of professionals, from the social and health fields, will allow the sharing and dissemination of the products of the project, in the form of teaching materials and trainning tools.
The final conference will be essential to disseminate the outcomes of the project among a wider audience.
At the end, partners will be explicitly required to make available the design of the project and its products to a broader public in ways compatible with their activities institutional activities and on the web.
Erasmus+ has an open access requirement for all materials developed through its projects. If your project is producing intellectual outputs/ tangible deliverables, please describe how you intend to ensure free access for the public to a digital form of this material. If you intend to put any limitation on the use of the open licence, please specify the reasons, extent and nature of this limitation.
The results and the productions of the project will be shared through the web site and other social networks like facebook. The publications and the seminaries acts will be able to be requested by the website. We will send the results and the good practices manual also by mail at the mailing list of every organizations involved in the project.
To ensure that the project's results will remain available and will be used by others.
The project's results will remain accessible on the website that will become a tool (also after the end of the project) to maintain opened the contact between organizations involved in the project. The tools built during the project and collected in the good practices manual will be used during the daily work of the organizations involved in the project in a synergic way of collaboration with the organizations not involved in this project. Social work is based on network and every action is realized by various actors, so, using the results of the project in our daily work will be a way of sharing them with our daily partners.
If relevant, please provide any other information you consider appropriate to give a full understanding of your dissemination plan and its expected impact (e.g. how you have identified which results are most relevant to disseminate; how you will ensure the involvement of all partners; how you see synergies with other stakeholders, etc.)
The dissemination activity it will be composed by:
What are the activities and results that will be maintained after the end of the EU funding, and how will you ensure the resources needed to sustain them?
The main objective of this project is the building of new tools to approach the trainning of professionals working with deep conditions of social exclusion. These tools will remain within the work culture of the organizations involved and will become a new way to implement strategic actions aiming at thebuilding of social inclusion programs.
Once these trainning tools are avaliable in the community of professionals they can be used, replicated or adapted to new forms in unpredictely ways, reaching an indefinite number of people.
The network of this project will also become a space where the organizations will be able to share its difficulties and its obtained results.This doesn't need additional resources.
It would be good if it is possible to organize an annual meeting between the organizations involved in the project to maintain a strong network strictly connected. To reach this aim we need additional resources to pay the cost of the mobility.
We assume that the local partners also avail themselves of the resources available from government and politics, to disseminate the project results and the continuous measures and integrate them into their own work processes.
Please provide a short summary of your project. Please recall that this section [or part of it] may be used by the European Commission, Executive Agency or National Agencies in their publications. It will also feed the Erasmus+ dissemination platform.
Be concise and clear and mention at least the following elements: context/background of project; objectives of your project; number and profile of participants; description of activities; methodology to be used in carrying out the project; a short description of the results and impact envisaged and finally the potential longer term benefits.

The project "Dignity & Well Being: exchange for changing" aims at creating a strategic partnership for vocational education and training of professionals working with homeless and refugees with a special focus on the most deprived and severely mentally ill. It will try to identify pathways that improve professionals abilities to listen and understand their voice and needs, and also to design and propose more adequate answers that increase their physical and psychical wellbeing as well as their dignity and acess to rights.
It also aims at promoting improvements in terms of quality, innovation and excellence in the training of professional workers in social and mental health field, specitally for those working with homeless and refugees with mental illness.
To accomplish these two general objectives, the projects intends to build an international network of professionals working with homeless in different kinds of organizations and countries, to promote workshops based on the presentation and discussions of cases studies,in order to identify and learn new and inovative solutions and, at the same time, to produce a training curriculum and trainning tools that can be shared and spread among other professionals in each country.
The project network includes eight organizations that have a long experience on the deliverly of services to the mentally ill and the most social excluded, combining organizations from both the public and private, as well as the health and social sectors.
It will use a methodology based on intervision by peers in workshops with relatively small groups of experienced professionals.
Through a program of visits and workshops, all the participants will present case profiles, focused on situations of homelessness and/or refugees with severe mental health problems, and will try to evaluate similarities and differences in the difficulties and interventions. During the project it will be possible to visit the partner organizations, to see how they work, their methodology and to share their knowledge of the phenomenon. Four workshops will be made in different countries in order to insure a wide range of experiences and a special focus in each one: physical and mental care issues, emergency and social interventions, housing solutions and rehabilitation and resocialization interventions.
After the four workshops, an international seminar and conclusive conference will give the opportunity to discuss the topics identified in the workshops to a wider forum, with more participants and experts.
Finally, the project will use and disseminate what was learned to better prepare professionals working with this population. It will build a training curriculum and training tools on how to better provide dignity and wellbeing to homeless with mental health ilness, it will produce a good practices manual and also will try to establish clear recommendations that can be presented at the national and european political level.
We expect that these project results will enrich and help the community of professionals who often find no clear guidelines in their daily work. We also expect them to be helpful to those who work on a decisional level and have to plan and make political options.
Ultimately, we expect that those for whom the professional community works for will be the main beneficiaries.
