beskrivelse av organisasjon
LIMISI was established in 2002 as a non-profit organization for the comprehensive care of functional diversity. As an Occupational Center, we dedicate our efforts to the socio-labor inclusion of users, training and educating them in basic social and occupational skills for their personal development, social and/or professional. With these objectives or pillars of action we promote the construction of a social integrative network, supporting vulnerable social groups, in our specific case disabled and dependent people.
The association coordinates, in addition to the Occupational Center for those over sixteen years of age, an Educational Rehabilitator Center for minors of school age. From this perspective we focus on addressing the early ages to educational and social inclusion, aiming to respond to their personal and academic needs. From both points of work, we fight for the principle of autonomy of all our users, training them for the social, political and leisure time participation, fundamental axes in our current society. In order to close the full circle of action, our multidisciplinary team offers guidance, information and advice to the involved families, adapting assertive programs and appropriate activation protocols and coherent to each personal situation.
With regard to the Volunteering program, the entity has specifically participated in the EVS since 2013 having an active role of shipping organization for four years (2016).
As an organization focused on the attention to functional diversity our main aim is to achieve the personal autonomy of all our users, within their capacities and possibilities, paying special attention to the basic activities of daily life. Therefore, principles such as empathy, patience as well as communicative and social skills are essential to develop methodologies that achieve our objectives. The activities that we carry out in the center need adaptability, positive approach and problem solving skills.
All our experiences related to users and their direct contact with volunteers, whether from European, national or regional programs constitute a greater support to consider that it is the line of adequate action. The social relationships that are established between them provide new ways to resolve the same problem, communication strategies adapted to the personalities of each of our members as well as variety in propositions and approach to users. It is important, in the same way, to recognize the great experience that brings the entire body of LIMISI to know and be able to discover new cultures and ways of life. Our global and intercultural perspective also makes clear the principles of respect, equality and tolerance that we want to transmit as an essential social value.
Throughout the year, we carry out activities that vary according to the different seasons or needs of our users, always bearing in mind the pursuit of their autonomy and training. From job placement to more dynamic, social and diverse activities such as physical activity, music, dance, relaxation, workshops, occupational skills, reunions etc. all of them can provide a complete perspective of the functioning of any social nucleus, taking into account that the presence of volunteers constitutes a fundamental support in order to encourage daily work of all the members in each of the activities presented.
From our perspective, we can meet the recreational and educational needs of the little ones. A clear example of the functionality of ESC is the transmission of a new culture, constituting itself above all in the language, games, rules, learning strategies, social skills or work at an early age.
