For several years the Castell-Platja d’Aro Town Council has applied a model, the so called relational-linking model, in its all social education programs. The model, the theoretical basis of it have been defined in recent decades, fosters a relationship between educator and student, between professional and user, and between professionals, which favors proximity and creation of links, and increases the confidence capital created by the fact of “being” rather than “doing” with the person who requests services from the municipality. The model focuses the professionals’ attention on the person and on his/her trajectory of inclusion and prioritizes the creation of l networks among professionals.

The model has been recently validated though a research project called Human Value whose results, published in March 2018, demonstrated that the model helps to improve people’s quality of life and also serves as a basis to consolidate all supporting services offered by the organization to the citizens.
