Coordination and Information Centre for People with Disabilities and Elderly

KIS

Coordination and Information Centre for People with Disabilities and Elderly (KIS) is the Czech association based in Prague which aims at several main points:

 

  • provide information about social inclusion  and possibilities for disabled people
  • organize workshops and seminars relating to issues of people with disabilities
  • prepare the documents and initiatives for dealing between state and non-state institutions leading to improving the lifestyle of people with disabilities
  • advisory for disabled people
  • raising awareness activities, information activities and publishing

 

 

The KIS focuses on people with disabilities and elderly along with their families and caregivers. In Central Bohemian Region, it founded 11 co-working centres for caregivers wishing to start a business. These co-working centres provide an office space equipped with computers, printers, scanners and other facilities necessary for launching the business. The significant issue they are pointing out is the situation of disabled youngsters who want to integrate to society without the daily support of families and caregivers.

The KIS is currently implementing two projects related to young work and youth with disabilities. The first project is called “Not poor girls, we are heroines”. The rationale of the project comes from the overall focus of the association and the project targets the caregivers who are mainly women. Being a caregiver person is very exhausting and time-consuming as it can be a full-time job for which they don’t have enough time to enter the labour market. The project gives them a chance to launch their own business in co-working centres and provide the training courses, seminars, workshops and advices.

The second project is named “The training of paramedical staff in Pilsen Region”. It aims at broadening the offer of training courses in the Pilsen region and at deepening the skills of paramedical staff. Seven e-learning modules will be developed within the project and these modules will be piloted on the target group (nurses, laboratory technicians, ergotherapists, psychotherapists etc.).
