Emfasis Social Street Work Ethics and Principles
Inspired by the declaration of Dynamo International
- Street Work is an internationally recognized form of social support.
- Its main purpose is to support and protect vulnerable social groups or people and to empower them to protect themselves. Social street workers focus on children and young adults as well as with adults (middle aged and elderly) who face extremely challenging life conditions and suffer various types of exclusion
- Social Street workers become the primary and ultimate CONNECTION towards providing crucial to education and social support structures, when it is obvious that everything else has failed.
- Social street work advocates that the people themselves are an integral part in what happens step by step. Social street workers work constantly on establishing a trustworthy relationship with all target groups, encouraging them to break the silence, so that they can have access to ongoing support.
