Project description Intervention type Evaluation type Setting Target group Country Quality level
Title: Projecto Crescer Mudando
Summary: The GAP (Cabinet for social and psychological support) appears through the project “Crescer Mudando” (to grow and to change), promoted by GATO and financed by IDT. This is a part of the “Eixo de Intervenção da Prevenção” (to intervene and to prevent programme) and it is a result of the diagnosis that was carried within the city of Faro, which includes the parishes of Sé, São Pedro and Montenegro. This project started on the 1st December 2008 and ended on the 30th November 2010. After an evaluation carried out by the team in IDT, the project was given another 2 years to function. The GAP intended to be an asset to the local community, from both social and psychological approaches, by promoting the development of individual social and personal competences which would allow children and teenagers to more effectively deal with risky behaviours, delinquency and social exclusion. The GAP also provided support to adults and families who were at risk and vulnerable from the social and psychological point of view. Thus, the goals were to effectively intervene in order to resolve or at least minimize problem situations encountered throughout the City , namely: petty thefts in social neighbourhoods (cars, stores, houses, wallets), absenteeism at school, drug and alcohol addiction, juvenile delinquency, violence at home, poverty, trafficking, criminality, juvenile prostitution (mainly male), and violence and risk behaviour in general. Our actions succeeded in putting the target population for this project in contact with healthy life style situations, which were unknown for the majority of them, and that further stimulated the use of the learned competences to build a more structured life for themselves. A project such as this, in order to succeed, has to be based on trust. Therefore, we developed a lot of field work, going door to door, letting people know about our goals and our willingness to help. It is true that the governmental entities that exist and have the mission to intervene do not have the necessary capacity to respond quickly, as they have a great number of cases to respond to. In the same manner, the existing IPSS do not have these types of actions on a regular basis. Our project, through GAP, was therefore a necessary and innovative one, especially in what concerns psychological support, and a number of different social and educational responses, all in one same project. Our project has been praised and recognized by a number of institutions, namely Algarve University, João de Deus High School, who have worked closely with us by offering to receive a number of trainees. Besides the team that will be mentioned on another point, we had several volunteers working on our project. >>
