Project Partners

The partnership is large and diverse enough to incorporate many different cultural, educational, social and economic backgrounds, languages and experiences to offer an excellent test bed for addressing all forms of bullying including cyber, homophobic, alterophobic, disablist, racist, etc. The partnership reflects European and national NGOs, alongside public and private sectors to ensure all relevant and experienced practitioners are brought together to address what is a growing issue in Europe and the expected impact of carrying out the work at European level will therefore be greater than the sum of the impacts of national projects. .Diversity within the partners at European level allows the partners to consider ethnicity, race, cultural heritage, alternative lifestyles, Roma/travellers needs, religion, faith, beliefs, atheism, Sexual orientation (heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, asexual) and all forms of health and disability.

Centre For Promoting Lifelong Learining (RO)

CPIP is a Romanian NGO that has worked in the area of Lifelong Learning since 2005. CPIP’s main objective is to promote lifelong learning through all relevant stakeholders. This is done by taking part in diverse European initiatives and then mainstreaming results and products developed into regional activities. CPIP is part of European and national networks focused on adult education training and has conducted meaningful projects in:
  • social welfare and marginalized groups;
  • social responsibility as part of two national networks;
  • regional development by working in health and safety for agricultural sector and in training rural developers.
  • SME development through collaboration with SME supporting bodies and by developing tools for integration of mobility workers.

So far CPIP has worked on projects dedicated for the reintegration of inmates, with focus on minor and young offenders. We feel it is a natural step to start developing activities for the young exposed to criminality before they enter the penal system. We bring into the partnership the “inside” perspective of youngsters trapped in a vicious circle of relapse, and use it as a preventive tool. In our region in Romania the gang related crimes are low but are starting to appear as a reaction to the lack of social alternatives. This project will bring tremendous innovation to specialists that are now facing new situations and need new intervention tools. It is the perfect moment to counteract this problem, as the level is still manageable.

Spectacle Theatre (UK)

Spectacle Theatre Company specialises in working with disadvantaged youth and communities to promote social justice and alleviate the impact of poverty. Founded in 1979, Spectacle was a key player in pioneering access to live theatre for people living in areas beset by multiple deprivations. Based in the valleys area of South Wales, we deliver an innovative and specialist theatre service in English and Welsh and our award winning work has been toured internationally. In 2011 Spectacle decided to ‘act differently ‘and use its skills and excellent reputation to
  • Create and deliver an innovative theatre based service that meets the needs of those disadvantaged by poverty
  • Ensure that continuing partnership working supports Welsh Government initiatives in challenging poverty

This change developed new creative partnerships and provided better artistic, economic, social and educational outcomes for individuals and the communities we live and work in. It fundamentally altered the work that we do bringing us into direct daily contact with those most disadvantaged in our community, in particular children and women. By remaining small, Spectacle Theatre is able to be adaptive to community need, minimise overheads and aspire to be financially sustainable. We work with people of all ages who face multiple disadvantages and a combination of severe social harms such as substance misuse, mental illness, extreme poverty, violence, bullying and abuse. To this end we develop a range of theatre projects, workshops and training resources that are delivered in partnership with schools and colleges, young offender’s institutes, prisons, the probation service, voluntary organisations, with public, private and social enterprises. We are embedded in our Community through involvement in public service and voluntary forums and look outwards through involvement in International and European theatre projects.
