After three years of project work, the SEMPRE partnership is happy to present its key results and findings in the following outputs:


"Empowerment - Making it Happen. A handbook on user involvement is social service design and delivery"

The Empowerment Handbook was made for staff of social service providers and everyone who works within social services. It presents empowerment tools that were tested in SEMPRE, examples of their application in the Baltic Sea Region and tips for success when involving users in social service design.


"Practicing User Involvement - An Organisational Roadmap For Social Sercvice Providers"

The Organisational Roadmap is directed at the leadership level of social service providers. It informs them how to start and implement a process leading to more user involvement in organisational practice and social service delivery. You can download a "pocket version" of the roadmap already. The full roadmap will be published here soon!



The SEMPRE Guidebook for Empowerment Training (coming soon!)

The SEMPRE partners have piloted training modules that are meant for building the empowerment capacity and knowledge of current and future social workers. The Guidebook compiles training material and lessons learned in the pilot trainings and is based on the action learning method.


  Micro Project Brochure (coming soon!)
This brochure will present around 30 micro projects that were initiated by the SEMPRE partnership, actively involving disadvantaged groups in developing new social services at the local level. The brochure will be published here soon!


  Policy Recommendations (coming soon!)
We are compiling recommendations for policy and decision makers in the fields of social affairs, regional development and innovation, aiming at a reliable, affordable, and accessible service infrastucture in rural areas. The recommendations will be published here soon.
