Activities that are foreseen to speed up the achievement of this objective specifically aimed at the development of the public services supporting the integration of the sensitive society groups into the local community through the example of Kętrzyn (Poland) and Svetly (Russia), at increasing the knowledge and skills of the social services employees in both partner towns as well as at the creation of possibilities for integration of the vulnerable groups (in particular people with disabilities) into the local community.
