Kick Off Meeting in Cheltenham

On 22nd and 23rd of October 2018 the partnership of the new project “SymfoS for Youth Care” met for the first time in the UK to agree on key elements of the project development. The project aims to improve the integration chances of disadvantaged young people (NEETS) in Europe by an innovative counselling method based on the approach of Symbol Work. Working with symbols offers young people an additional, universal language. Under the leadership of the german coordinator Sozialwerk Düren (DE) the partners Hafelekar (AT), University of Gloucestershire (UK), Asociación Caminos and Colegio ColpolsocA (both ES) and Associacao A3S and Instituto Politecnico Porto (both PT) are working in the following 3 years on the implementation of the methodology in the youth welfare system.
