Abram Ward Community Charity, trading as Abram Ward Community Cooperative (AWCC) was established in 2013 to support the development of a Community Hub and Community Assets network within Abram Ward, via the provision of services which reflect local needs and demands within Abram Ward and the Wigan Borough.

The Cooperative supports the growth of local people around Health, Social care and Training, via Community Group and Social Enterprises. The Cooperative will provide ‘backroom support’ and Business advice for Social Enterprises and Community Groups across Wigan Borough.

We believe that sport is the most effective tool to combat the damage inflicted by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) such as abuse, neglect or dysfunctional home environments that are so often passed on from one generation to the next.

Through the service of daily care of persons with disabilities, in addition to training through workshops, "Vivere" is working on socialisation and participation of our beneficiaries - participation in the life of the local community - and thus we sensitise the community for this population and reduce prejudices about it.

"In terms of services, we are the only such organisation in Kragujevac, and professionally, we have always tried to be innovative. We have created a service biorhythm, i.e. we plan weekly activities of each beneficiary based on their condition."

They produce vegetables – peppers, cabbage, tomatoes – and wheat. They sell their healthy and natural products at the market in Pirot, supply local restaurants and sell their goods in cooperation with their friends from the Independence Trade Union.

They plan to open a distribution center and complete the process: production, processing and distribution of vegetables. Their cooperative employs between 40 and 50 of our members and they are mostly families of the displaced, refugees and exiles. The cooperative also employs six Roma families.

The Fenomena Association was founded in 2006 as a non-partisan, nongovernmental and non-profit association.

The production employs women over 50 belonging to the group of hard-to-employ women who used to work in the textile industry but still have met the retirement criteria.

They achieve their goal primarily through the work engagement of the association members in the workshop for the production of unique souvenirs and through their print shop.  

The Association gathers people with cerebral and infantile cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, plegia, children with developmental disabilities and others. They also gather parents/carers and help them share their experiences and help.

The objectives of our association are the promotion of social protection in Kraljevo and assistance in the process of decentralization of social protection services – I.E. The return of social protection services back to the responsibility of the town so that the needs of citizens are met in their immediate environment.
