Community Development

Community development requires a social environment that encourages progressive principles, policies or laws, which in turn promote a culture based on shared knowledge, skill development, and social integration, support and rehabilitation.
Research shows that nowadays, individual vulnerability is rising. This is due to a continuous exposure to traumatic events such as poverty, conflict, substance-abuse or other life-threatening behaviours. In this context, community interventions are designed to increase awareness, to develop a healthy lifestyle, to prevent disease, or to provide adequate support for improving the quality of life.
The use of an evidence-based approach enables the development of reliable interventions, through scientific theories and strategies (such as the theory of reasoned action). These methods have been shown to lead to a stronger and longer-lasting social impact at a local, regional, national or international level.
The community intervention is available for both organisations and institutions interested in providing opportunities for their members to develop in key life areas. Through a meaningful contribution to their development, vulnerable individuals will be empowered to achieve better ways of living, and functional roles within their community.

Intervention goals:

  • To create effective research designs, assessment methods and reliable interventions
  • To promote resilience and autonomy among individuals, families and groups
  • To design community-based support systems for risk prevention and lifestyle development
  • To support community bodies with the development of efficient policies.
