Check-in is part of two European networks of NGO’s and has lasting partnerships with different stakeholders in Portugal: enterprises, several NGOs, universities, local authorities. We are part of informal international groups, such as the group responsible with initiatives related to the European Year of Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations. Our good practice presentations in working with stakeholders are an asset.

Our success lies in the quality and professionalism of our Staff, which are a group of dynamic and motivated people, with exceptional organizational and customer service skills.
