2010 Annual Report
Development of local organisations and family life
Opening of the CADRAN centre
Located at 23 rue de Strasbourg, CADRAN (Centre pour Accompagner et Développer les Ressources pour les Associations Nantaises) is a new resource centre aimed at helping local non-profit organisations. It is managed by the Direction du Développement Associatif. The centre welcomes people and informs them on existing services as well as local non-profit organisations and how they work, with the help of a group of resource organisations promoting the interchange of experiences and knowledge…
In 2010, 30 non-profit organisations were welcomed and an information search tool was created on the life of local organisations.
Meeting on social and cultural events
For better coordination of the people involved in socio-cultural events, the city organised the first "Assises de l'Animation Sociale et Culturelle". Two hundred participants, institutional partners and local organisation representatives came together for 8 thematic workshops in the autumn of 2010. A debate took place in December 2010 on the first summary of this work.
Premises to promote social and cultural events in the districts
The creation of 2 new district houses in 2010, "La Maison des Haubans" in Malakoff and "La Maison de Quartier Bottière", is part of a global process aimed at promoting social and cultural events.
The transformation of the Manu premises dedicated to local non-profit organisations (opening in March 2011) has increased the local hosting capacity and made it possible to offer a broader range of services to residents.
The construction work on the Maison de Quartier Nantes-Sud started in 2010 and is due to be completed in 2012.
Facilitating access to services and encouraging families to speak out, such are the two major goals of the City's initiative in favour of parents.
Thus, from 11 to 23 October, the "Questions de Parents" event invited Nantes parents to attend a series of 66 meetings on various topics: parent/teen relationship, adoption, single parenthood, caring for premature babies, mothers' exhaustion, the authority of parents and that of outsiders, Internet for the family, etc. All in all, Questions de Parents brought together 1,500 participants over a two-week period in 50 venues across Nantes.
