Ten will financially support children with severe disabilities Prague 10 | From the region Pražská Drbna
Prague 10 will financially support twenty-three families who take care of children with severe disabilities. The city council complies with their application under the subsidy program and can give them either 20 or 25 thousand crowns. It will depend on the type of school the child attends. Vršovice Town Hall will distribute a total of 475 thousand crowns.
These children cannot apply for subsidies through legal representatives. These are pupils under the age of eighteen, hold a disability card and have a permanent residence in Prague 10. All these aspects had to apply during the so-called decisive period, which was the second half of the school year 2020/2021, for which they will be subsidies paid.
“A key condition was also that applicants complete school attendance on a daily basis. We contribute subsidies to their families to the costs associated with going to school, and at the same time they support the integration of children with severe disabilities into everyday life and their integration into society., “Describes the councilor Michal Kočí (Pirates).
Children get either 20 or 25 thousand
The long-term subsidy program is set to respect the type of facility that the child in question visited in the second half of last year. If at least part of the semester, a child goes to regular schools that do not specialize in working with children with disabilities, he can apply for 25 thousand crowns. Otherwise, it is 20 thousand crowns.
“For me, systemic support for citizens who suffer from any disability is an absolute priority of the social policy of municipalities. Whether financial or advisory support,“It adds Kočí.
