Solidarity Coffee is a creative way of breaking down barriers, invented by members of Jaunuolių Dienos Centras (JDC) in the Lithuanian city of Panevėžys.
People with intellectual disabilities set up a mobile café and offered coffee to their fellow citizens as a way of reaching out, making connections and breaking down barriers. People sat together, talked and new relationships were created.
JDC is a member of Citizen Network, find out more about them at: https://pjdc.lt
This project has been supported by the European Union Erasmus+ programme for adult education.
JDC is a day centre without walls which helps people combat prejudice and helps people work together for inclusion and full citizenship.
This project is led by our Greek partner Puzzle SE and brings together organisations who are developing innovative forms of social support for people with intellectual disabilities.
What is the mission of a social worker in this situation? Jaunuolių dienos centras (JDC) in Lithuania share inspiring their work in the first Day Centres Without Walls webinar.
