description of organisation

“Il Cammino”, founded in 1987, is a non-for-profit social cooperative which offers services and assistance to adults with disabilities of different levels and nature. Its creation was promoted by the ANFFAS (National Association of Mental and Relational Disabled people’s Families). It manages 4 socio-rehabilitative centers (2 Residencial and 2 Daily Socio-Occupational Centers) in the city of Forlì and hosts about 45 disabled people, on a daily or permanent basis. In the attempt to improve the service, in 2000 the Cooperative obtained a certification of its Quality System according to the ISO 9001, as a recognition of the good standards of the offered services. It is very important for the guests’ wellbeing to have adequate spaces and for this reason the two daily centers of the Social Cooperative “Il Cammino” are located in welcoming buildings in the countryside in two suburban areas of Forlì, Barisano and San Leonardo. The Centre in San Leonardo has two different buildings, one is a Residential Centre and the other a Daily Socio-occupational Centre, while the centre in Barisano is especially dedicated to daily workshop activities with its Daily Socio-rehabilitative Centre. The Residencial Center "Ravinala" is divided in two parts, one is a little appartment where disabled people with good individual autonomy live with the possibility to have the help and support of professional staff while the other part of the "Ravinala" is for people with psycho-physical disabilities that need a higher level of assistance. The European Volunteers will perform their service respectively in the Daily Socio-Rehabilitative Centre of “Barisano” (via Trentola 104, Forlì), in the Daily Socio-occupational Centre of “San Leonardo” (via Sansovini 2, Forlì) accessible thanks to the transport system of the cooperative, and in the Residencial Center "Ravinala" (Via Maceri Malta 22, Forlì) that is situated close to the city centre.In our Daily Socio-Occupational centers we try to develop personalized projects of intervention through handcrafts and artistic workshops, classes of psychomotricity, socialization, recreational activities and summer holidays for our guests. The cooperative manages also the transport services as well as the food service complementary to the realization of these activities. The staff is composed of 42 employers and working members; all these people represent the great resource of experience and competence of the Cooperative. The same services are offered also by the residential centers along with basic assistance and the planning of activities linked to the daily managing of the living environment. In this way, we try to create a family-like climate around the people who live in the centers.
