HOUSE FULL OF WHEELS (DPK)

House Full of Wheels is a project of a multifunctional centre for the handicapped developed by our organization named Sportem proti bariérám, z.s. (Fighting barriers with sport) in Stará Paka. 

Our headquarters are being built on the premises of a former printing house and in a family house. These activities include: social services (personal assistance + relief services), barrier-free housing, protected workshops, sport, pastime activities, therapy, etc.

PRINCIPAL IDEA

The principal idea of our project is to give the people with various disabilities the environment to build a community where they can work, live, help themselves and others and where they can enjoy sport and pastime activities as well. The handicapped will be provided with professional assistance and supervision. This community will be open to the public into which it will be naturally integrated through its activities (work, integrated sports, pastime activities, etc.).

PROJECT’S GOALS

Barrier-free housing with assistance – we want to develop barrier free housing with professional assistance and supervision for 12 people with heavy physical handicap (in wheelchairs) and six mentally handicapped people

Employment for the handicapped – protected jobs for ±50 individuals with a disability who will work in the protected workshops and in DPK’s offices

Personal assistance – offices and a night-room for personal assistants who are already providing 24-hour assistance in the Novopacko microregion and will provide assistance in DPK as well

Relief services – for self-sufficient people who need barrier-free housing with personal assistance for a transitional period (e.g.: sickness or assistants’ leave)

Sport and pastime activities – mostly the infrastructure for handicapped athletes (barrier-free housing, fitness and rehabilitation, training spaces, etc.) + training facilities and a day care centre

Barrier-free housing – not only for the athletes but also for the tourists visiting Český ráj, training participants, visitors of the DPK’s inhabitants, etc. 

Multifunctional facilities – for lectures and trainings, sport and pastime activities, screenings and balls, etc. 

Pub – for the inhabitants as well as the general public

Warehouses – for the athletic equipment, mobility aids, material and products of the protected workshops, etc.

We are also considering:

  • renting part of the facility to the Fitos Printing House for close cooperation (possible employment for our workers)
  • rehabilitation – physiotherapy for the inhabitants and workers of DPK and the public
  • organizing accredited training for integrated athletic activities
  • art courses of ceramics and pedig
  • expanding our services for the public and production

The principal idea of our project is to give the people with various disabilities the environment to build a community where they can work, live, help each other and where they can enjoy sport and pastime activities as well. The handicapped will also be provided with professional assistance and supervision. 

The mentally handicapped in DPK will help the people with physical disabilities, who will in turn for example organize work related and pastime activities. This system will make them more independent and will enable them to pursue activities that had been financially unapproachable, as they require more assistance. Thanks to employment and mutual help they will rightfully feel more valuable as opposed to the current situation when they frequently feel useless and like a burden.

WORK FOR THE DISABLED IN THE HOUSE FULL OF WHEELS 

On 27.6.2014, we officially established a new workshop for our organization after more than ½ year-long negotiations with the Employment Department. It was an incredible bureaucratic quarrel, after which we could establish 3 protected work positions (CHPM). Our original goal was to establish 10 CHPM here, which was sadly unachievable due to poor legislation.

Another significant increase of CHPM in DPK will happen with the development of the barrier-free housing with assistance. People with milder physical handicap or mental disability will be able to find employment as personal assistants and people with serious physical disability will either perform light manual work or organizational work, administrative work, IT work, other positions include sales representative, etc.

Eventually, more than 50 people with disabilities will find employment in the protected workshops and offices of DPK.

SOCIAL SERVICE – PERSONAL ASSISTANCE 

Our organization provides a registered social service – personal assistance since 2007. We provide personal assistance to all the handicapped people in Nová Paka and the surrounding area in accordance with the community planning in the Novopacko microregion. We also provide personal assistance to handicapped children in elementary schools and in kindergartens, to handicapped people, including seniors, who want to remain in their homes for the longest time possible as they feel comfortable there, to the attendees of our events, during sport and cultural activities, etc. We provide this assistance non-stop = 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including holidays. We are able to provide full personal assistance even for those completely dependent and we also help families who just need a temporary help in taking care of one of the family members. We help with personal hygiene, food preparation (including feeding), transportation and accompaniment to a doctor, to a grocery store, and more

Personal assistance in our organization is provided by seven professional and qualified personal assistants who have successfully completed an accredited course. We also cooperate with many volunteers.
