The Working introduction of weak categories has been the subject of the meeting organized within Relatium, a project financed by the Assessorship of Social Politics of the Province Lazio and finalized to the introduction of excluded people or people at risk of social exclusion, into the working world.
The idea was born from a proposal of the ASL of Frosinone and from Labos Foundation, in collaboration with the Asl of Rome H and F, and of the districts of Viterbo and Latina.
The enterprise has represented an important step ahead in the strategy of working integration for disadvantaged groups, above all as far as the method of the combined programming among public, private and social private actors, and of integration of the instruments of the social and socio-sanitary politics, and of the work and professional formation. “It’s a project that has involved different kind of people in difficulty , from drug addicts to disabled, with a special attention to social disadvantaged people.” These are the words of Alessandra Mandarelli , the councillor responsible for the Social Politics of Lazio. The project has allowed the working introduction of 40 excluded people or at risk of social exclusion. “ Sixteen persons on forty – has explained the councillor responsible Mandarelli – have employed without fixed- terms, , the others have been employed for projects or for a fixed-term employment into no profit firms”.
The project has involved entrepreneurial truths on the territory, with the aim of including the disadvantaged groups, and has been realized after a preventive monitoring of the working requirements of the enterprises. “The firms – has concluded Mandarelli – in fact have had an active and fundamental role , they were not only the last interlocutor of the enterprise. This demonstrate that not only the institutions and the social private have an ethically conscious and responsible approach. We wish that there will be more enterprises like this one, and also that in the future the employment without fixed- terms, will represent the majority or the totality of the works.
