Aproximar (APX) is a NGO acting as social innovation hub aiming to enhance people, communities and organisations’ human and social capital as a strategy to strengthen their capacity to deal with existing and emerging challenges and opportunities. The mission is accomplished daily by co-designing and developing tailor-made social innovation, good practices exchange, and transference driven projects, besides delivering its own pack of empowering and capacity building services: training, consultancy, and social intervention.

APX develops, implements, and provides services in 4 main sectors: 1) Education and Community Empowerment (2007); 2) Economy, Employability and Entrepreneurship (2009); 3) Criminal Justice System (2012); and 4) Active Ageing and Dependent Care (2016). Our offer (programmes) always combines social science (knowledge), active methods (people) and suitable tools (technology).

It counts with 8 trustees (non-paid members), 32 staff and more than 50 volunteers, on a daily basis, across different regions and cities of Portugal.

 

Aproximar works with the approach of community health and social providers, such as care centers for older adults and long-term care, schools, community centers and youth centers. We integrate a health approach to our prevention programmes, including drug prevention, prevention of gender-based violence, empowerment of yougsters and women, among others topics around education.

 

Aproximar is keen to work at transnational level. We are specially looking for collaboration and cooperation in the field of health and care, with a focus on long-term care and the upwarding of the care workforce. Aproximar is delivering support and training to formal care workers across different organisations and we want to expand this.
