CAT  SOCIAL COOPERATIVE

is a third-sector organization whose aim is to promote social work’s core values. We believe that our work’s operational and professional aspects also imply an involvement in ‘public ethical’ issues. Our Cooperative’s objective is to work as a partner in the promotion of effective social policies by listening to requests for legality, justice and active citizenship, made by socially weak and marginalized groups or by other groups – such as the youth – who represent an often-undervalued resource.

A LONG HISTORY

CAT is a Social Cooperative that was established in Florence in 1985 with the aim of offering employment opportunities, working towards the pursuit of the general interests of the community, the promotion of humane, social integration of citizens, through the carrying out of activities in the fields of prevention, assistance and social and economic reintegration.

THOUSANDS OF SKILLS, 
ONE COMMON OBJECTIVE

The professions working in the field are multiple and include: psychologists, anthropologists, pedagogues, sociologists, experts in training processes, experts in orientation, professional educators, street unit operators, social marginality operators, socio-cultural operators, infant educators, cultural-linguistic mediators, animators, experts in the fields of music, visual arts, communication and information technology. 

INSIDE OUR SURROUNDING

We are defined by the innovative interventions that we carry out in the field of services focused on the individual, from planning to production stage.  This is thanks to the constant attention that we pay to changes in society and continuous staff training. A significant portion of society possesses a high level education, degrees and specialisation diplomas, and a high percentage of these are women.
