Nursing-educational facility in Waleńczów
So far the foster care tasks in Kłobuck region were implemented by only two 24-hour facilities, one of which (the orphanage in Kłobuck) exceeded the number defined in the act – by 14 spots for pupils. After examining the needs and possibilities, it was decided to meet the requirements for the optimal number of places through the creation of new, smaller facilities. For this purpose, the building of the former School in Waleńczów was adapted, where soon up to 14 children will find their safe haven there.

Why was the project undertaken?
Due to the law on family support and alternative care system, the standards for nursing-educational facilities specified in it regarding the number of places for children recommend moving away from the standards of orphanages. Currently, the creation of care institutions in the form of a so-called family apartment, providing an intimate environment for the effective work of educators with children is promoted. This form provides space for maximally 14 pupils.
What has been achieved?
The full range of adaptation works involving construction, electrical and sanitary works, in particular concerning changes to the destination of the object. In the building, among other rooms, a kitchen and dining area, children's rooms, guardians’ rooms, therapeutic room, lounge, laundry and drying room and a bathroom on the ground floor and first floor were distinguished. The entrance and ground floor of the building was customized to the needs of people with disabilities through the construction of a driveway. However, the bathroom on the ground floor is equipped with the appropriate handles.
In addition, all rooms of the facility have been re-fitted in functional furniture and the necessary equipment and household appliances were purchased.
