Social Innovation How do projects contribute to increase the development of social innovation applications to make more efficient and effective local services to address the key societal challenges in the 2 Seas area?

CASCADE

The CASCADE project has developed a financially sustainable model for elderly dementia care that can be replicated across the 2 Seas area. The model promotes a holistic, person-centred approach to maximise independence, quality of life and engagement with the local community.

Two pilot sites have already put the model into practice in Belgium, as have two brand-new care facilities that are being launched in South East England.

PACE

The PACE project has developed and tested a flexible, affordable approach to childcare, enabling 205 families to gain access to this essential service.

The project also facilitated collaboration between welfare and employment services, leading to 78 parents enrolling in training or education and 92 parents undertaking volunteering, internship or work experience.

38 VOLT, a solution for flexible childcare in Mechelen, supported by the European Regional Development Fund through Interreg 2 Seas.

SIREE

The SIREE project aims to improve the social integration and economic independence of refugees. It achieves this through the co-creation of 40 learning communities in schools to promote the engagement of refugees in education and entrepreneurship.

The project will train 450 teachers to support refugees through education and self-employment, with an aim to generate 50 businesses and 4 business networks to support long-term enterprise development.
