What is it about?

The project works with the systematic introduction of work with sexuality and relationships in residential, healthcare and education facilities. This is not established in most of the facilities. Therefore, the rights of clients may be violated. The creation of "Guide for working with sexuality” was based on research, cooperation with facilities with focus on the needs of clients, personnel and organizations. The Guide helps facilities to go through the process of introducing work with sexuality and create a sexually-friendly environment where sexuality can be fulfilled safely with dignity.
