The association acts in the field of social welfare, promoting homecare. In a welfare system that is more and more tailor-made, resourceful and integrated with other policies, it offers services and actions that meet people’s real needs, above all those whose living conditions are fragile, not self-sufficient or impoverished. It uses the “Bag of Tools”, a programme of seminars offering continuing training, exchange of experience and cultural and professional growth to healthcare assistants. It promotes and develops specific continuing training projects to strengthen homecare support for fragile and not self-sufficient people, in collaboration with public bodies and private social ones.
The Compagnia di San Paolo has been supporting the association every year since 2003 with total grants of € 780,000.
