End of recruiting families for the Village project
June 1, 2021
The Village Project has completed its recruitment of new families.
We have compiled an overview of contacts and support organisations so that affected families are well informed about support services and can access them (see details).
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us. Especially our Village facilitators, who do an excellent job and give the families and especially the children new perspectives and ease their daily lives.
Where do we go from here?
The families who have not yet completed their participation will be looked after by our Village Facilitators until the end of this year at the latest. After that, the practical part and the accompanying data collection will be finished and the evaluation phase of the research project starts. At the same time, we are applying for funding to initiate a follow-up project that builds on the experiences and results of the Village project. We are also in contact with the province of Tyrol, which is interested in the Village practice approach and could possibly finance a project extension or the implementation of the practice approach in the Tyrolean regular system. We were assured of a decision on this by the end of the year by Provincial Councillor Fischer's office.
Best regards from the Village team!
