“Srce” – Udruga djece s teškoćama u razvoju, osoba s invaliditetom i njihovih obitelji (SRCE, Croatia)
“SRCE” Association of children with development disabilities, disabled people and their families is an independent, non-profit organisation with over 170 members with different disabilities and of different ages. It was established by parents of children with disabilities in 2011.
In our self-owned facilities, we offer social services, a volunteer service centre and self-sustainable programs (solar power plant, collecting old paper,..) and have 25 employees – experts. In 2016 we have had 151 volunteers and over 5000 volunteer hours.
SRCE is the only organization of its kind in our area and maintains good relationships with public institutions, local government, kindergartens, schools and other non-profit organizations. Through all this years we have successfully worked towards an inclusive society, included children and adults with disabilities as active part of society and made changes in local laws through proposals.
Our programs and projects are financed by the local government, ministries, donations and the European Social Fund and in all of them we have partners or associates. Our mission is work together to promote inclusion and volunteer work, and to build our network on the international level.
