Our association, called Association for Social Cooperatives (Stowarzyszenie na Rzecz Spółdzielni Socjalnych), has worked within the social economy sector for 10 years. We are an umbrella organisation supporting social cooperatives that give employment to the most vulnerable job-seekers: long-term unemployed, ex drug or narcotic addicts, people over 55 years alod, ex- prisoners, refugees, young people from difficult surroundings. In the frame of our activities, we help to fund new social cooperatives and to maintain the already existing ones.
