Workshops and sheltered employment

Finding sense and recognition

Many socio-therapeutic institutations enable people to work on the manufacture of products that combine aesthetic value with a practical function, and where the manufacturing process is geared to the needs of those who do the work. They enable the co-workers to become a social organism. Besides the different areas of production, there are also various therapies and programs for further education on offer.
