The daily programme of the Workshop “PANAGIA ELEOUSA”
It is very demanding because: a) we have the responsibility of transferring 160 people with disabilities every morning from the door of their house to the Workshop and late at noon from the Workshop to their homes, b) we provide opportunities in the field of education and training, in the therapeutic programmes and in the cultural activities c)we provide them with their food, breakfast and lunch, which is very important nowadays because of the financial crisis d)individualized care and hygiene e) assisted living to the children that lack parental care and f) we claim the rights of the children and their families. The daily programme with all the above is difficult and demanding. The standards for quality of all the provided comprehensive services and activities of the Workshop “PANAGIA ELEOUSA” are set very high according to the 10 principles of EQUASS Excellence, which are the following:

Person Centered Approach,
