Social Work Principle Social Work Principle : All men and women have the same value, whatever their race, religion, political opinion, attitude… Social action must respect all the differences that exist in individuals, groups, communities. But our Welfare State, designed for a specific user model, is not responding to the new realities, to the new users. The services must be adapted, therefore, to the new users. The services must be adapted, therefore, to the new users. Problem Analysis
–There are two, especially important, subject matters relating to the adaptation to change : The acculturation processes activated in the immigrant. The adaptations to be carried out by the different services that receive the immigrants; in other words, the acculturation of the receiving society, itself –The main job search source is the web of informal networks. The services perceive precariousness and lack of acknowledgement of diversity. Problem Analysis

Intercultural Mediation Actions with Entrepreneurs The MILE project was implemented in the Macarena area, paying visits to the immigrant entrepreneurial fabric and preparing meetings for the month of February 2009 The visits were carried out by the team of mediators from the Sevilla Acoge Foundation from November 2008 to February visits were made. The mediation team verified the good acceptance of the project; it also positively valued the strategy used (based on their needs, previous contact of mediators, bearing in mind their working hours, proximity of meeting place to their workplaces, neutral place for meetings…)
Intercultural Mediation Actions
Entrepreneurship among Cultures Day This was held on 24 March 2009
Methodology Meetings with entrepreneurs The basic idea of these meetings is that the aim is not to offers services but to find out what people think and adapt our answers to their expectations. The aim was to create a level of equality. The space enabled participants to express their achievements, needs and demands. It was the moment to listen and compile proposals: what their job demands are, what ideas they have for enterprising actions, their needs to qualify and improve businesses; in short, take the first steps to establish communication channels and interactions both in decision- making and in execution.
Methodology Entrepreneurship among Cultures Day Entrepreneurship among Cultures Day Enterprising actions and immigration, –Keynote conference Enterprising actions and immigration, by an expert in social economy and third sector Conversation among entrepreneurs –The Conversation among entrepreneurs panel aimed to be a forum for dialogue about the current situation, experiences, participants professional and personal commitments, the new fields of application and future tendencies in the extensive field of labour insertion of immigrants, within the new context that is taking shape with the challenges of socio-cultural diversification.
