Community well-being & development unit
The team within this unit works together to identify and understand the needs of an evolving society, with the aim of creating projects and services that may offer support, provide education and guidance, so as to ameliorate the psychosocial wellbeing of all citizens.
How may we be of support to you?
These are some of the ongoing projects Caritas has been offering within this unit:
A programme offered to schools on a yearly basis throughout the scholastic year.
The aim of this tool is to equip the young generation with skills and encourage attitudes that will enable them to make healthy and constructive decisions throughout their life, also guiding them to steer away from the destructive avenue of drugs, alcohol or technological addiction.
Caritas offers various rehabilitation programmes to men, women and adolescents who seek support and long to heal from drug addiction.
Some of the residents who would have walked through this journey of recovery offer to share their story within a community with the hope of encouraging young people to stay away from the snares of drug and alcohol abuse.
For many years Caritas has also prepared and offered parent’s forums to parents in schools, companies and any community that may ask for this form of psycho-social education.
The aim of these forums are to equip parents with tools that may provide them with further insights to better their relationship with their children.
Employment assistance programme
Caritas also thinks about those companies who may wish to benefit from our services, by offering psycho-social education through talks and workshops, moreover provide a safe space to employees who might wish to consider seeking support through counselling or social work assistance.
Workshops / psycho-educational talks for the public
These workshops or talks are specifically designed to the needs of those requesting this service.
The aim of these talks is to offer psychosocial skills enabling the listener to gain tools that will help him or her sail through the seas of life.
Another way of reaching out to the communities is by making use of various forms of media, with the aim of creating awareness of existing services also providing knowledge and skills to the public, regarding various psycho-social themes.
