FROM EXCLUSION TO INCLUSION
A CHALLENGING SOCIAL ENTERPRISE!
3rd The CARe Network Conference
17 - 18 June, 2015
Conference Centre National Technical Library
Prague, Czech Republic
The CARe Network is an international network promoting recovery and social inclusion.
The themes for this conference are:
1. Recovery and social inclusion
2. Social Entrepreneurship
3. Challenges for institutional change
One of the important aspects of recovery is to be(come) part of the world (again), to have meaningful activities and social roles. It requires not only efforts from the part of the person but also from the part of the community, in terms of supports and opportunities.
Peer support, family support and professional services which are focused on recovery & inclusion are essential ingredients. New possibilities emerge when the focus shifts from services to the community, from care to entrepreneurship, from social benefits to paid labour.
