DCWW Lithuania: COVID-19 Challenge

COVID-19 is challenging everyone: we are staying at home and we are missing our everyday routine.

It is an especially difficult time for people with intellectual disabilities. People are isolated at home or in a group home and do not have the opportunity to be engaged in their favourite activities.

What is the mission of a social worker in this situation?

In this webinar a group of social workers from Jaunuolių dienos centras (JDC) share their experience and ideas on how to make this period more efficient and more fun for everyone.

Speakers: Jolita Kavaliauskiene • Ieva Kaupaite • Dovilė Sedleckiene • Virmanta Kvedariene • Lina Trebiene

Moderator: Simon Duffy
