Elaborating the clubhouse models national service in Estonia
The aim of the project is reducing the careload for people and supporting heading into the labour market or continuance as well as supporting subsistence of people with disabilities heading to the labour market or increasing aptness in continuance.
Activity: “Supporting welfare services for recruitment of the elderly, people with special needs and people with coping disabilities and their family members”.
Implementation unit: SA Innove
The project’s activities aim to create a separate government-funded “service” for the clubhouse that increases the living quality of people with mental health conditions through offering low threshold services.
There are up to 40 people with mental health conditions participating in the project, out of which 20% have been helped with going to work and 3 have started working.
In result of the project:
A person gets into the service as soon as they want.
Even those people get the service, who at the moment can’t reach special care service due to the complicity of the process and inconvenience although they’d be in need of it.
More people get help because the clubhouse service doesn’t have to conform to the special care services 1/10 ratio of staff to client that apply to them.
Receivers of the service can apply for the open labour market and that with the support of the clubhouse.
The clubhouse has created cooperative relations with companies where the clubhouse is responsible for recruitment to the specific work placement, the quality of work and substitution.
Decreases inconvenience related to assessment and time cost and increases dignity of the person coming to the service. Members of the clubhouse (people with mental health conditions) are creators, developers and consumers of the clubhouse services at the same time as well as enlisting new members (people with mental health conditions) and introducers of the clubhouse services to collaborative members (Department of Social Affairs, hospitals, schools etc.)
people with mental health conditions have their own community where they’d feel awated for, needed and wanted; where they’d get to give and create (not just to be a passive service consumer like in typical day centres)
