Cáritas Española is a confederation of 70 regional organizations linked to the Spanish Catholic Church which works to offer opportunities to vulnerable populations as well as people in risk of exclusion in Spain.
Active since 1957, Cáritas works with the general population in risk, such as families, the elderly, migrants and children as well as groups imperilled by economic, social or health difficulties like ex-convicts, the homeless and trafficking victims.
Relief Applications worked with Cáritas Española a mobile app accessible and user friendly for both Cáritas staff and beneficiaries. The objective was to increase accessibility to Cáritas programmes aimed to help populations at risk of exclusion to access the Spanish labour market through an app. The app aims to offer beneficiaries access to courses, workshops, job offers and any resources that can help them to improve their possibilities in the labour market. By using this app Cáritas regional branches around Spain are able to give visibility to their labour support services while offering beneficiaries an easy way to register in job offers or educational initiatives. Developed with a modular point perspective, the app can be enhanced in the future by adding new features. With this app, users are able to:
  • Access job boards managed by Cáritas for their region
  • Access a list of courses and learning opportunities
  • Register in a recruitment agency-like initiative hosted by Cáritas
