INCREASE focuses on the current situation and the possibility to develop support and training for staff in residential youth care homes and disability centres.

Based on a needs analysis with the staff from residential care homes and various cooperation services, the partners will develop a training curriculum (including training material) for those who support the young people in residential youth care homes and crisis intervention centres for young people.
Furthermore the partners will present political decision makers with written recommendations based on the results of this project.

An international conference in Graz, Austria, to present and discuss the project results will close the two-year Erasmus+ project.
