Supportive Cohousing

Best practice by ATC Piemonte Centrale, Italy

The aim of this project is to favour social integration in public housing neighbourhoods. The Supportive Cohousing project is the latest evolution of an experience that has lasted 10 years in Turin and province.

The main goal of this project is to build up a real social network that includes ATC, volunteers and tenants. The project is developed in cooperation with the Municipality of Turin. The guest stars of the Supportive Cohousing project are young volunteers that decide to relocate in the public housing neighbourhoods. The Province legislation gives them the chance of a rental reduction in exchange for at least 10 hours per week in volunteer actions dedicated to an intervention plan in favour of tenants.

Every action in the plan is evaluated by a working group made up of social service workers, ATC, local police, organisations and associations that manage the Supportive Cohousing project.
