The iSocial Foundation offers the professional teams of Social Services of City Councils and third sector organisations the possibility of receiving group support to put this social intervention methodology into practice. In this accompaniment, the team is taught to agree on work guidelines typical of a co-production team; to apply personalization and empathic work tools that favor Self-Directed Support; and to design planning, decision-making and resource allocation processes based on this approach.
