Social service for families caring for children with disabilities. The goal of the service is the prevention of social orphanhood
According to the data of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, 56% of children in children’s homes have physical development impairments and 82% have psychological development impairments
Peredishka -- the first and only social service in Russia that gives parents caring for children with disabilities the opportunity to get help from a specially trained professional family, placing the child with that family for a period of time. The service has positive effects on the situation in the family caring for a child with disability: parents receive much needed help and support in looking after the child, they can attend to pressing matters or simply get some rest; and a child learns to communicate with new people. The service lowers the level of stress in the family, improves the quality of life and helps to keep the child in the family.
A family may count on receiving 360 hours or 15 days of Peredishka a year till the child turns 18 years old.
special attention is paid to selection and training of the professional families, as well as to monitoring and supervising the placement to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the child.
the service may be provided for varying periods of time, from a couple of hours to a few days, at the child’s home or the professional family’s, or perhaps where the child receives treatment.
the service is completely free for children and parents. The service is financed from the funds raised by the organization.
We value the trust-based relationships we establish with children and families that enable us to successfully collaborate in achieving our main goal – keeping the child in the family.
Peredishka has been included in the list of recommended services in the National Strategy for Actions in the Interests of Children for 2012-2017 (approved by the Decree 761 of the President of the Russian Federation) article V, clause 4.
