We receive multiple demands daily. In order to better channel them we must discriminate if it is information task related or guidance related. The follow up task appointed does not correspond only to the final result as a consequence of the offered information or guidance but it also has relation to the fact that the individual has fully understood / comprehended it.


We shall start this phase based on the following indicators:

•The Driven Force Group and the created committees are organized and autonomously functional.

•The objectives as proposed in the PAI have been fulfilled.

•Groups of public-housing residents’ associations are organized and self-managed.
