People in Need  Social Integration  Ústí nad Labem

Ústí nad Labem

In the regional capital of Ústí nad Labem there are located some socially excluded communities, the largest one in Předlice district. Most of the local inhabitants are dependent on social benefits and they are also severely afflicted by indebtedness. Many Předlice families live in inadequate housing conditions while paying exorbitant rents and those who work, usually go moonlighting.

The children of Předlice do not attend nursery schools and at primary schools they often miss classes. As for further education, they either do not tend to enter higher education at all, or they do not complete it. All of this, together with widespread unemployment in the region, leads to their reduced competitiveness on the labour market. Therefore, the Ústí nad Labem office of People in Need strives to deal with these and other problems that the inhabitants of socially excluded communities have to face.

People in Need has been operating in Ústí nad Labem since 1999 when, as the first non-profit organization in the city, began to systematically address the problematic of socially excluded communities. At first, through providing field social work and organizing leisure activities in Matiční Street and subsequently in other city districts as well. “Since the beginning of our existence in Ústí nad Labem we have been trying to create programmes for children and the youth, particularly in cooperation with Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem, where future pedagogues and social workers are studying,” Vít Kučera, the Office Director, says.

Nowadays, the branch has 23 employees and about 30 volunteers. The scope of our activities has expanded even to localities such as Předlice, Krásné Březno and Mojžíř. We offer educational and leisure activities for pre-school children and their mums, schoolchildren as well as secondary-school students. “In 2012 our social workers served more than 600 clients; most frequently, they were helping to solve housing, social benefits and debt problems,” Radka Kunešová, Service Coordinator, adds.

In Ústí nad Labem we provide the following services:

  • low-threshold facilities for children and the youth
  • support for education in families
  • pre-school club
  • mothers club
  • careers guidance
  • field social work
  • social activation services for families with children
  • ‘Inspiration Sachsen’ cross-border cooperation
  • several-day workshops and stays
