The Joint Community Commission of the Brussels-Capital Region Government is also making a financial contribution. The Rights First project offers the opportunity to reconsider ongoing process of coaching vulnerable people as well as policies to facilitate access to social rights. Innovation being the key word of this project, it suggests new partnerships and new ways to ease integration policies within an post ante and ex post evaluation over the course of 30 months (from January 1st, 2022 to June 30th, 2024).
Kick Off of the Rights First Project
March, 11th, 2022
Bruss'help and its partners marked the occasion with a kick-off conference on the Rights First Project.
Rights First calls for stepping out of our comfort zone and for revealing good practice to build rights supports that enable vulnerable people to start a new life. The focus is on guaranteeing a minimum income, housing and employment so that people can have a decent life and regain their dignity. Here is a summary of the main points.
The current context in Brussels confirms the need for a collective and effective dynamic through structural partnerships to enable people to get out of a spiral of eternal emergency and successive temporary solutions. The cooperation agreement between the Regions on homelessness (12-05-2014) advocates the search for new effective solutions and the exchange of good practices.
