description of organisation

The Social Cooperative Insieme was founded in 1979 by a group of citizens who was feeling the need to have a deeper discussion and a shared approach on quality of life, specifically focussing on work-related issues, social exclusion and youth disadvantage. According to its statute, the cooperative “does not pursue any profit-making policy; its objective is human promotion, to be achieved through mutual cooperation. The Cooperative counts around 100 worker-members and some volunteer-members; there are about 40 places available for individuals taking part in work-integration and support programmes.The cooperative mission is promoting and developing two fundamental aspects of social cooperation:- production of activities aimed at the creation of educational programmes for disadvantaged people, through the involvement of such people in work experiences. The services provided in these years have been recycling, re-use and reconditioning of materials; such activities have been developed into a work training programme where tasks, schedules, contacts with citizens and the working environment have been used as “a mean to develop job skills and ability to establish social relationships”; - services provided directly to citizens. This has been possible thanks to the efforts made by the cooperative in order to intertwine with the local community. The cooperative’s market sector, which is the separate waste collection, carries with it a raised awareness on the issue of waste reduction, and contributes to the development of important civil values as the environment protection. Life Plus Project “Prisca” (http://www.progettoprisca.eu/it/) caught all these aspects, creating a re-use model based on Insieme features. The three matrices environmental, social and educative are strictly interwoven in the whole Cooperative working setting. The Cooperative can count on the professional support of 7 educators, 5 social workers, 4 assistance operators, 44 administrative/technical permanent employees.
