Both Latvia and Lithuania have a high percentage of the population at risk of poverty or social exclusion and large number of families at social risk. Social risk leads to limitations in activity and participation that result in people experiencing social exclusion. Children from social risk families have lower scores at school and are more prone to job loss or earn less even while working; experiencing higher levels of poverty; suffers from a lack of community life. Due to inadequate social services, families at social risk are isolated and dependent on state aid. Project will improve the integration of children and youth at risk into society by improving the quality of social services, their accessibility and the creation of new social services such as work with youth on the street, work in the Day centers and etc. During the project the premises of children day care center in Siauliai will be repaired and new day center in Jelgava will be opened. Information campaign encouraging to adopt children will be implemented, consultations for families at risk will be provided, and social public service provision will be improved. Project partners will share previous experience, will develop social services, and will test them, increasing the efficiency of provided social services. Social integration programs, such as work with youth on the street, will be developed, and measures for social inclusion, such us organization of free meal services for children from low income families at all schools in Siauliai will be provided.
