Improving caregivers’ skills: a Mind inclusion online training

lip 23, 2020

Gender, Inclusion & Human rights

From 10th to 19th of June, the Mind Inclusion partners held an interesting online training. For a total of 7 days, international participants discovered new things, shared experiences and just generally had a lot of fun!

The participants had access to a full training by mixing the attendance to theoretical sessions with practical, hands-on activities. The goals of this training were mainly to increase knowledge about the methodology and tools developed in the Mind Inclusion project; increase facilitation skills related to innovative educational methods; and increase knowledge about the complex concept of inclusion.

It was a great opportunity to gather the project partners as well as educators and caregivers working with people with intellectual disabilities. Together, the consortium spent a great time online. A big thank you to all the participants!

Started in November 2018, the Mind Inclusion 2.0 project , funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission, aims to find sustainable and inclusive solutions that help caregivers improve their skills, on one hand, and allow disabled individuals to participate in social life on the other hand – with to help people with disabilities with overcoming obstacles when accessing public places through technology. The project consortium gathers lead partner Margherita: Società Cooperativa Onlus (Italy) together with Polibienestar Research Institute, INTRAS Foundation (Spain), Social IT Software & Consulting Srl (Italy), Lietuvos sutrikusio intelekto zmoniu globos bendrija «Viltis» (Lithuania) and ALDA.
