The support is here for you

The project The support is here for you (Imaš podršku) is being carried out since September 2020, in partnership with the PET PLUS Association, along with the financial support of the Ministry of Labour, Pension System, Family and Social Policy. The project will be carried out until September 2021 and is aimed at providing support to former prisoners in the process of reintegrating into the community, as well as their family members. 

The main goal of the project is to contribute to the successful rehabilitation and reintegration of former prisoners and their families through psychosocial support and mental healthcare services, the strengthening of the parent-child relationship and the strengthening of intersectoral cooperation.

Specific project goals:

  • to strengthen parent, partner and personal resources of former prisoners and raise the quality of relationships in the families of former prisoners
  • to train former prisoners to successfully deal with symptoms of anxiety through a brochure, handbook, workshop, and individual counselling.
  • to raise the awareness of the professional and the general public at the national level on the usefulness and opportunities of active inclusion of former prisoners and their families in the community
  • to strengthen intersectoral cooperation with the aim to better reintegrate former prisoners through intersectoral meetings

Target groups which we aim to cover with this project are former prisoners, their children and immediate family members, as well as representatives of the professional and the general public for whom the publications created under the project are intended.
