The five partner entities of the project will conduct guided workshops during the months of May and June with the users to detect the needs they have in their daily lives

This May, we inaugurated the first participatory workshops included in the research process of the All By Myself project, coordinated by the iSocial Foundation and supported by the Department of Social Rights of the Generalitat de Catalunya.

The sessions will bring together people with disabilities linked to the entities that are part of the project to collaboratively detect the main obstacles this group faces in their daily lives.

The objective of these workshops, which will take place between May and June, is to generate a conversation among the people who fit the profiles defined by the project, to better understand their routines and observe the barriers they encounter. From everyday actions such as dressing, cooking, going out, taking public transportation, etc., to relational contexts such as leisure, the dialogues driven in these workshops will present different situations to jointly detect the pain points, a term referring to the existence of difficulties or needs not always detected or previously verbalized.

Users from the partner entities of the project (Ampans, Fundación El Maresme, FCSD, Support Girona, and the Alba association) will participate in the workshops, and the discussion topics will be adapted to their specific circumstances. Each workshop will have a total of between 4 and 8 participants and will last one hour. A person from each entity will also participate, facilitating the workshop, and a person will act as a rapporteur, noting all the information that arises.

These workshops will allow a better understanding of daily barriers and their context and will be the starting point for a reflection that, in a second phase of the project, will seek to design the best response to the observed obstacles.
