In 2009 NGO “Sutyajnik” in cooperation with Ombudsman of Sverdlovsk Region is starting a new project “Enforcement of the European standards for people with mental health problems in the framework of criminal procedure and penitentiary” supported by the British Consulate-General.

UK positive experience in this sphere includes successful methods of social adaptation of vulnerable people, co-operation of state bodies and NGOs and promotion of international human rights and bringing them into life.
