Ambitions

The Shift helps members to make use of the global framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals to map their societal ambitions.

10. Reduced inequalities

People with a migration background today have a high risk to be socioeconomically vulnerable, Trauma and psychological issues related to migration are by no means the only contributing factors. Nonetheless it has the potential to be a (key) element in reaching this SDG.

17. Partnerships for the goals

Fedasil, OCMW’s (Social Welfare Institutes), Red-Cross, partners in the domain of education and integration, Vlaamse Gemeenschap… We basically connect with all relevant stakeholders to promote our methodology and through co-creation to help migrants in Belgium along the chain, starting from the entry point (reception centre). We do this by promoting our methodology and through co-creation. Additionally we play an active role in international networks to promote good practices and built on other experiences, which aligns with our vision of universal equal right to healthcare.

8. Decent work and economic growth

Finding meaningful, decent work and becoming an active member of society are inevitably crucial for ones self-fulfillment. Yet trauma hampers personal development, offering accessible and effective (trauma-) therapy is an invaluable element towards making this SDG succeed for everybody.

4. Quality education

Trauma and psychological issues are a real hindrance for enjoying quality education. Good and equal access to mental healthcare is therefore paramount to reach this SDG. We actively lower the barriers to mental health care for those in need and we provide assistance to education personnel to assist them in their tasks.

3. Good health

Make mental health care for refugees and migrants accessible and efficient by intervention, research and training.
