Marginal groups and dropped out

Our cities seem to be more and more inhospitable and exclusive, inhabited not by citizens but by competitors, where identities are often recognized on interests with a strong corporate character. In this context, the most fragile are those who are hardest hit: a group of people, even very different from each other in terms of type of hardship, stories, problems and needs, which share some indispensable social and human needs such as being accepted, reached from services, treated with respect, listened to in their needs. They are people who often lived as enemies, as a source of social alarm: transsexuals, Rom, toxic people, tramps … More and more often they are “opportune enemies” on which to download anxieties, the subjects to be excluded to preserve the safety of “normal people”. Dedalus, with its roadside interventions, damage reduction, and the provision of accessible and close contact spaces and listening spaces, aims to restore dignity and rights to all those who live in highly marginal conditions. Interventions that also look at the whole local community in an attempt to take on health concerns and social conflicts in a healthy and conscious way.

Unaccompanied foreign minors are those minors who are outside their home country, separated from their parents or from an adult who, by law or custom, is responsible for their care and protection.

For Dedalus, first of all they are boys who leave alone with a migratory project very similar to that of an adult, but with the fragility of their being minor: boys and girls escape from countries devastated by poverty, famines, wars, social and political conflicts.

They are small men and small women, who have to deal with very miserable living conditions, often characterized by the constant tension between the dream of success and the risk of failure. Small travelers to whom affectivity and play are often denied. In order not to leave them alone, to offer them spaces and opportunities for citizenship and to support them in their migration project, Dedalus has been proposing and building spaces for meeting with them since 2001. The road, with the traveling desks and the local services, the initial reception centers, the community for minors, the Ipm, the intercultural centers, are some of the places where the mediators, the operators and the ethnic guardians build relationships with the minors foreign unaccompained every day, implementing projects and services of reception, of care and emancipation.

Trafficking in human beings is a complex phenomenon and subject to continuous changes that modify its scenarios and characteristics. Forced prostitution, para-slavery work, exploitation in illegal activities, forced begging are increasingly widespread and intertwined. Since 2000 Dedalus carries out projects covering all the stages of intervention addressing victims of trafficking and exploitation: outreach and emersion, referral , protection, identification and first assistance services, second level assistance and social inclusion.

The interventions, which benefit from the Equal Opportunities Department of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, are implemented within the framework of the Emersion, Assistance and Social Integration Unique Program for victims of trafficking in human beings and / or victims of exploitation (art. 1, par. 1 and 3, DPCM 16 May 2016), and adopt a strategy that promotes the integration and extension of the network of public / private subjects and experiences, developed in the years, that act locally on the phenomenon.

The programs are built around the person taking into account the nationality, age, gender, type of exploitation suffered, physical and psychological conditions and include: first contact activities aimed at emersion and first assistance; multi-agency victim identification activity; listening centres; anti-trafficking toll-free number; legal protection, psychological support, social-health assistance, residential reception; individualized programs for job inclusion; activities aimed at increasing housing autonomy and empowerment, in order to prevent the risk of re-victimization.
In recent years, victims of trafficking in human beings have merged into asylum-seeking flows, which is why projects also work to increase the capacity to identify and provide assistance to victims of trafficking within the international protection system.
The cooperative is registered in the national register of associations and bodies that carry out activities in favour of immigrant foreigners, in section II (ex III).

Dedalus designs and manages career guidance into work, innovative training paths, in particular in the immigration sector, in childhood and adolescence policies, and in actions to support job placement.

The training is aimed at the recipients of the services, at the local public and third sector operators and aims to promote the emancipation processes of migrants and young people in difficulty; to combat early school leaving; supporting the professionalism of the operators; to improve the knowledge of the migration phenomenon and to spread good practices.

While the career guidance into work for groups at risk of hardship and social marginalization, in a labor market that in itself already offers poor and disqualified employment opportunities, has a transversal function to all actions aimed at improving the quality of life and to design individualized paths of social work inclusion and access to the right of citizenship.

The prerequisite for the emancipation of people in conditions of real disadvantage is the achievement of stages of competitiveness in the labor market such as to place them in situations of equal opportunity with the offer. In this perspective, Dedalus supports them in the definition of personalized training and work paths, through orientation interviews, pre-training, skills assessment, active job search techniques, internships in companies, work grants.
