Parsec cooperative, considered in its nature of social enterprise, plays a significant role in supporting social inclusion. It represents a link between the land, the people who inhabit it and the institutions, helping to make society fairer, stronger and more cohesive. It is, therefore, a non-profit organization that, by pursuing its goals, contributes to improve the quality of life of society actors in which it operates.
Through the following data, we want to give an account of the choices, activities, results and use of resources, in order to make them visible to citizens and other stakeholders, and how the cooperative interprets and implements its institutional mission and its mandate.
We would like to represent a transparent framework of the complex interdependence between the economic and the socio-political factors resulting from our choices, stressing the quantity and quality of the relationships between our cooperative and the partners.
Then showing the socio-economic impact and the well-being generated by our work.
In drawing up a possible reflection on the past year, we found ourselves interrupting the long and inexhaustible theory of "things to do", procedures to follow, administrative commitments to be fulfilled in order to dedicate ourselves to a moment of reflection on the period we are experiencing, at within which the action of our cooperative unfolds.
At the risk of saying something banal, what we experienced was an extraordinary period. More, unpublished.
We had already been severely tested by everyone what the new millennium brought with it, with all its corollary of unprecedented and dramatic events: wars, migrations, climate problems, the crisis of the Western economy. To complicate the life of all of us and of our cooperative, in December 2014 the "Mafia capital" investigation rained down on us, without our being in the least involved, which threw a veil of suspicion on all social work, rushing us into one a state of profound, unjust mortification. We resisted, strengthened by the awareness of the indispensability of our work and the certainty of our honesty and administrative correctness.
In the light of the last two years, what has just been said seems to be downsizing, fading, paling. Since 2020 we have fallen into an unprecedented crisis, which has affected the entire social body: a crisis that has changed, even if we do not yet fully realize it, the anthropologies of all of us. The Covid-19 pandemic, still not over, has shown beyond all that it should have shown that if we were all equally at the mercy of a stormy sea, not all of us had the same boat to deal with the waves. We were the first to realize immediately how many citizens were unable to retire from home, simply because they were homeless (12,000 in Rome); we realized that the DAD is different if you have four children and two rooms or, conversely, two children and four rooms, or if you have only one device or, conversely, laptop for all members of the household. While everyone said "everything will be fine", we added "we hope for everyone".
Today, to this series of events that have precipitated us, in a world in profound transformation, we add the war in Europe. It seems to see the silhouettes of the biblical horsemen of the Apocalypse, war, violence, famine and pestilence.
All of this weighs on the lives of each of us, on our thoughts, on the concerns for our loved ones, on the people we care for and on everyone's future. However, we want to think that at least one area can represent, if not a certainty, at least a terrain where each of us feels he has full citizenship, decision-making and transformative capacity. I'm talking about our work, our way of understanding and acting cooperation and social work. In fact, while what we have just described was happening, we seem to be able to say that we have continued to keep the bar straight, guaranteeing with the greatest possible methodological rigor and commitment, services oriented towards social well-being, combining, with difficulty, our action in territories with the participation in the moments in which new political trajectories are built for the social.
We continued to design, we would say successfully, participating in the offer of public tenders for the management of services; we have guaranteed moments of meeting, exchange and training for members and collaborators. All this without neglecting the care of relations with our networks, with our clients, with the actors of the territory.
Over the next year, we expect PNRR resources to finally restore breath to city care, helping to mitigate ever-growing inequality. We also expect that the long-awaited co-planning and co-planning will finally allow a non-ancillary relationship between citizens, cooperation and regional, municipal and municipal administrations.
