Casa Rosetta – Activities with disabled persons
Volunteers will support psycologists, social workers and staff in organizing activities for disabled who spend their day at the centre. The volunteers will be involved in conducting art therapy and horticulture workshops that linked to manual and practical activities related to the processing of ceramics and planting, will help disabled people to express themselves and to experiment with new situations. The volunteers will work, together with the staff, in conducting theatre, music and painting laboratories, not only to develop their own and user’s relational and creative skills, but also to prepare them and be prepared for events organized by Associazione Casa Famiglia Rosetta Onlus during local events attended by disabled people.
“Associazione Casa Famiglia Rosetta Onlus”, was founded in the early eighties to meet local needs in the field of health and psycho-social services policy. Since 1981 the association has been settled by the agreement with the National Health Service, as regards to the rehabilitation services and therapeutic communities. During these more than twenty years activities, the Association has been expanding its sphere of action in Italy and abroad, also reaching Africa and Brazil, where it runs centers with the same activities it implements in Sicily. The main aim of the association is to give concrete answers to those who suffer marginalization and social exclusion; to people with neuropsycomotor disabilities and their families, to people with mental illness, children and adolescents living in bad environmental and social conditions. The main activities, as well as regarding the works of Christian charity in favour of the weak people, are implementing measures of psycho-social in education, training, rehabilitation and research for the development of social policies.
