• Evaluating perceptions and attitudes on discrimination phenomenon, among 600 persons belonging to vulnerable groups (Roma people and people suffering from chronic diseases) in Alba with a view to develop specific tools to combat/reduce discrimination and inequalities in access to services offered by the municipality, in a period of 4 months.
  • Improving personal and professional development of 70 representatives of the local administration and NGOs in Alba Iulia to promote non-discrimination and measures for social inclusion in public local government, in a period of 3 months.
  • Develop specialized services and networks of exchange and transfer of good practice to reduce discrimination and marginalization of vulnerable groups within the framework of a resource center addressing vulnerable groups, for a period of 12 months.

The project partners aim to reduce social marginalization and to increase knowledge, understanding, acceptance and respect for minorities of local government representatives through an integrated approach of services offered to vulnerable populations.

A research, a manual for local government representatives for reducing discrimination, and training sessions tailor made and appropriate for representatives of local government and civil society will be developed and subsequently organized.

Persons belonging to the target group will benefit from specialized services offered through a resource center.

A network for transferring information and best practice between representatives of local government will be further developed.

Short and medium term, the project proposes to increase knowledge, understanding, acceptance and respect for minorities of local government representatives, to better match the needs and requirements of members of vulnerable groups as target group beneficiaries of the project.

Long-term effects of the project will involve improving the professional training process of local government representatives through education for non-discrimination.

The project will generate positive effects by improving existing services and programs addressed for vulnerable groups.
