The Society of Psychosocial Research and Intervention (SPRI - EPSEP in Greek)

The Society of Psychosocial Research and Intervention (SPRI - EPSEP in Greek) was founded in April 2003 with the statutory aim of improving the quality of life with regard to members of vulnerable social groups as well as combatting all forms of discrimination and social exclusion. The Society of Psychosocial Research and Intervention is a Non-Profit Organization.

Description

Being a vehicle for social economy, SPRI is based in Ioannina, the largest town in the Region of Epirus which is situated at the north-west part of Greece. Epirus itself is one of Greece’ 13 administrative regions and, according to Eurostat, one of the poorest regions in Europe. SPRI operates by a significant number of personnel (at least 50 persons) which covers a range of specializations (psychiatrist, psychologists, sociologists, social workers, nurses, psychotherapists, administrators, accountant and additional staff). In the context of its activities and for the implementation of its actions SPRI cooperates with appropriate specialized executive personnel and utilizes volunteers as needed. It is run by a 5 member Board of Directors while its scientific work is supervised by a Scientific Director. SPRI is registered in the Register of NGOs of the Greek Ministry of Health. It has been granted official certification for operating under an appropriate Quality Management System (ISO) and has certified managerial capacity of implementing European Programs. The range of its partners includes bodies of the wider public sector.
