The Education and Rehabilitation Centre (CRRES) is a municipal institution devoted to provide quality social services to children, youth and adults with physical, mental or sensory disabilities (from moderate cases to severe ones). The institution is a Day Care Centre that functions on local level. Its premises include 220 sq. meters altogether, divided into 3 specialized classrooms and 3 halls, 2 separate logistic offices, a room for specialized therapy, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen.

In addition to all the activities, our approach includes assisting families in understanding each person’s positive qualities which helps to build a stronger family unit and greatly improves each person’s opportunities for a well-adjusted life.

As we are constantly looking for new ways to develop our programmes by providing the best quality service and professional help, we take part in various scientific projects, and we put great emphasis on cooperation and networking with domestic and foreign institutions, organisations, universities and professionals from different fields.

The staff of the organization isn’t specialized only in providing highly specialized rehabilitation services but also for ensuring high quality education services for the needs of the adult learners who are coming to the Centre. We encourage each person and help them realize and fully develop their potential, to reach their maximum possible level of independence and a sense of self-realization. We use and adapt a variety of non-formal education techniques for the need of the disadvantaged community and enhance their learning capacity in global challenges topics such as social inclusion, discrimination, tolerance, environmental education, sustainable living.
