“For Habitus, it is about having the framework to create quality of life for the individual – and the opportunity to create quality of life for all those who need it” – says Martin.
“The resources and opportunities, which are available to us, also commit. What we are capable of doing in Habitus can help the vulnerable people that need help throughout Denmark. That is why I think we also have an obligation to try.
”Pedagogy is more than just care; it is also an ability to choose the method that suits the individual the best. Therefore, according to Martin Godske, it is also important to have a system that ensures that the right pedagogical method is chosen.
