Low-threshold Social Service for Children and Youth

What is a low-threshold service?

It is easily accessible and available in the environment of young people and families. It provides an open and safe environment and does not put children, young people and families under too much pressure – from the financial, psychological, time-related, physical or technical perspectives. The objective is to establish a suitable environment for making contact with individuals and groups avoiding or not actively seeking standard help from institutions, and to work with them.

The FORTUNÁČIK low-threshold social service for children and families provides counselling, prevention, education, and free-time activities for children, young people and families.

FORTUNÁČIK establishes support space improving the quality of life, establishing healthy relationships, developing social and life skills, and promoting creativity and imagination.
