Description

COMMON DESTINATION aims at realizing integrated, distributed and multi-action paths that work on the socio-economic (housing, employment) and socio-cultural (socialization, animation, awareness-raising) to enhance the self-reliance of the people entitled to international protection existing on the Latium Region.
The activities envisaged can be grouped in 3 large areas of activities, as envisaged by the Call, namely: housing insertion, promotion of job placement and socio-cultural insertion.

1) Housing insertion:

  • Implementation of Local Teams in the areas of Latina, Frosinone, Viterbo and Rieti, consolidation of Rome’s team aimed at a common methodology suitable to promote the reception of PIP people in families and their inclusion into social co-housing arrangements. These Local Teams will be informed and trained to this end.
  • Campaign of information and awareness raising to reach, attract and recruit the receiving families and individuals willing to share social co-housing in the concerned areas.
  • Identification of the participants: families and individuals for co-housing purposes (attitudes analysis, suitability assessment and selection) and PIP (identification and selection in agreement with the partners and the local network)
  • Family reception and social co-housing paths: matching with family/other individual and PIP, implementation and continuous monitoring of co-housing by specialized operators  
  • Testing action for family reception of PIP with psychological and/or physical fragilities
  • Implementation of a Housing Help Desk to  guide and accompany the target people in their search for suitable housing solution (housing free market and co-housing solutions), supply advice on contracts, fighting against the prejudices of the owners in concluding contracts with PIP. Finally, they envisage “housing subsidies” supporting costs such as rent, usage and furniture. If the Housing Help Desk is a point of access of a PIP to the project, they will care about him and prepare and Individual Plan

2) Support to job placement:

  • Implementation of 5 Job Orientation Points (1 per Province): contacts with reception centers/other PIP sending bodies; (if not done by other Help Desk) taking charge and drafting of the individual plan; skills and career plans; orientation to project and/or territory services (according to PIP).
  • Company scouting in the territories of the 5 provinces of Latium: company mapping; creation of a network of companies at regional level; identification of the required profiles (in collaboration with the company representatives); cross-referencing with the competence balances of the PIP; company/PIP match; organization of cognitive interviews.
  • Allocation of subsidies to support training and/or work activities according to individual needs (restaurant ticket; travel expenses; etc.).

  • Mentoring for business start-up: a path that can be started on demand to support self-employment (assistance, guidance) through individual meetings between experienced mentors and mentees (PIP).
  • Recognition of educational credits and qualifications obtained abroad by special commissions of university professors, through the methodology of background check and enrollment in online degree courses, including tutoring, for some of the recipients who have successfully passed the background check.
