Paper presentation
Trine Haslam , Tanja Miller

The presentation capture results from a research project from a miner local community in Denmark. The challenge for the welfare system and for the families concerns the generations issue. Families in the project have experience with receiving help from the society in more than one generation.

Reseach quistion:
1. how can coherent, right and at time interventions by coordination of multiple interventions lead to more quality in life for the families participating in the project and how will improvment effect the chldren in the family?
2. how can an more effective, flexible og interdisciplinary socialpedagogical work lead to higher quality?

It is an assumption in this project that more weight on participation and decisions making for all members of the families will strength the ability to live a good life. The project investigates how special Socialpedagogic staff by offering help to coordination and support in daily life matters can initiate development of more self-esteem and believes in making good decisions for the families and the children. The setup look very must like the Borås model – but with fare more focus on the citizens participation and construction of meaningful activities and framing. The presentation will bring the very first result of the project – building on interviews with staff, leaders and family’s inclusive children. It looks likes the support given by simplification of the numbers of events and appointments with representation from the system ex jobcentre and schools, is perceived as a great help. Why is that? And how does the Socialpedagogic staff explain the essence of their work? Does it require building up strong relationships? Does it require a clear description of roles? Does it require continuity? How can trust to the system be improved?
Methods: the study is carried out by collecting data from af workshop, interviews with professionals, parents and children. Also har data as statictic about children meeting up in school, daycare and hobbies, the adult attacment to labourmarket, networkmeeting and background information about the families historie in the system. Analyzed by an hermeneutic apporach and by inspiration fra sociologi and antropology.
Findings. The projsct is organised in three rounds and the finding concerns only the first round. The finding presented will be about a workshop with participation of the families in need. We use new innovative tools and are surprised about the succes. Otherwise a rang of themes for discussion and reflexions to improved the next round.
