About the project
The goal of the REGI-project (Reacting to Growing Immigration – Strengthening social inclusion of Estonian migrant families in Finland and Estonia) is to give a contribution in solving problems and challenges related to work migration. During the project social work professionals together with the main target group will develop solutions best suitable in supporting families of Estonian work migrants in Finland and ways to solve related problems. These solutions will be implemented and complemented together with members of target groups.
Also social work professionals and volunteers will be trained to notice challenges related to work migration before they grow to be problems. REGI-project can thus be called a pilot-project, because if the goals are achieved, the same solutions can be used on more general basis. The end result is better and healthier communities both in Estonia and in Finland.
Project partners are:
- Turku University of Applied Sciences,
- Tallinn University Rakvere College,
- South-East Finland-Estonia Centre and
- Baltic Region Healthy Cities Association.
REGI-project is financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg Central Baltic Programme 2014-2020.
