What does your organization do (100-word description)
The Omnia Network, of the General Directorate of Civic and Community Action, is a preventive, socio-educational, community and support program for groups at greater risk of vulnerability.
Omnia is a universal social intervention program that, using ICT tools as an instrument, seeks to improve and promote, both individually and collectively, the inclusion and connection of people to the community.
It is aimed at the general population, but with positive discrimination against people at social risk and more if they need to improve their skills to overcome their difficulties in accessing information technologies, in order to avoid their exclusion from the community, with special emphasis on the unemployed, children and young people, the elderly and families.
The exclusion factor caused by insufficient digital knowledge can affect several people and groups. This reality means that in Omnia there is a wide diversity of users with different situations and backgrounds. The Omnia space reduces the differences and favors their normalization.
Its purpose is to be a resource that participates, together with the other devices of the territory, in the achievement of the objectives of integration and social cohesion of the population of its environment.
Omnia offers spaces and equipment for public use and has the support of a professional, who energizes the space and advises users of the Point. The role of the facilitator is fundamental to develop the program in each territory and to make each Omnia a space of welcome, information, learning, socialization and participation in the community.
