Grundtvig Multilateral Project

Project No: 518564-LLP-1-2011-1-IT-GRUNDTVIG-GMP

A big portion of the adult marginalized population has never seen their competences certified due to not completion of any kind of school. As adults, former drop outs, people with learning disabilities, migrants they find themselves missing these recognized skills, not able to attend standard adult training, thus reducing the already scarce chances to access the labour market and increasing their social exclusion.


Family Project


Facilitating Family Learning on Work Life Balance

01/10/2009 - 30/09/2011

Project No: 502889-LLP-1-2009-1-LT-GRUNDTVIG-GMP

The problem of work-life balance is still faced by many families and often results in withdrawal of one of family members, usually women, from the labour market.

Despite some employers' initiatives to make family-friendly workplaces, they aren't widely spread and recognized in EU countries.

That's why it was important to raise awareness on necessity of bottom-up approach encouraging involvement of employees themselves in implementing family-friendly initiatives within their workplaces.


European Anti-Bullying Network

Merseyside Expanding Horizons is now involved in a 18 month project funded by the DG Justice under the Daphne III programme. The Daphne III programme aims to contribute to the protection of children, young people and women against all forms of violence and attain a high level of health protection, well-being and social cohesion.

The European Anti-Bullying Network aims to campaign to stop bullying across Europe. This network involves partners from Greece, Italy, Roumania, Germany and the UK who will work together to fight bullying and share best practices. 

Research activities at local level in the field of youth have been carried out by European Youth Worker Irene La Pera from Palermo Italy who is working at MEH for 6 months under the Youth in Action 4.3 project 'YALIM - Youth Active Learning in Moving'. Research has involved investigation into the current framework across Europe concerning policy legislation and good practices to support the prevention of bullying.
