  • LSR Group made a significant contribution to the development of regional universities (Ural Federal University and a number of others). The reporting year also saw LSR Group continue to help fund the St. Petersburg Foundation for Supporting Innovations and Youth Initiatives. The organisation’s mission is to support strategic initiatives of the city’s communities and people, unlock St. Petersburg’s innovative potential, contribute to HR and education programmes for the city and local communities, and to seek out and recruit motivated and active people to be part of project groups, and support volunteering.
  • LSR Group continued sponsoring sports events. In 2020, LSR Group rendered support to the Boxing Star Foundation for the Development and Promotion of Boxing, the Modern Pentathlon Federation of Moscow, and the Table Tennis Federation. We also made big donations to the Special Olympics Committee, which helps the disabled, and provided support in the hosting of a training camp in the run-up to the 19th Winter Deaflympics.

Collaboration with the Children Are Waiting charitable foundation

We have been supporting the work of the Children Are Waiting charitable foundation since 2010, providing them with organisational assistance and advice, as well as collaborating on other projects. The key objectives of our collaboration are: helping orphaned children to find families, consulting future foster parents, and providing psychological support and comprehensive assistance to foster families.

In 2020, LSR Group continued to work alongside the Children Are Waiting charity foundation to update and repopulate the databases of adoption portals and websites. LSR Group helps to systematise and regularly update information about orphanages and the children living in them. In 2020, thanks to our joint efforts, 302 children found their loving parents, bringing the total number to 3,946 since the launch of the project.

One of the major collaborative projects revolves around the support for the Family Adaptation Centre. In 2020:

  • 181 people completed their training at the School of Adoptive Parents;
  • 1,230 consulting sessions were conducted by the Foster Family Assistance Service psychologists with potential foster parents and those who have already adopted;
  • 27 online and 24 in-person meetings with foster families and specialists were held by the Foster Family Assistance Service psychologists;
  • 212 children aged 2–18 were part of sessions at the Family Adaptation Centre;
  • 5,410 hours of tutoring was organised for children based on the school curriculum.

In 2020, one of the Family Adaptation Centre’s priorities was helping children and teenagers with disabilities integrate into their social environment, develop communication skills, and build confidence in their social and personal value. Children were taught how to learn online. This gave the participants a chance to communicate with each other and try their hand at different activities and forms of interaction in a safe environment.

The Novaya Okhta and Okhta On the River assisted living service

The Novaya Okhta and Okhta On the River assisted living projects are the first services of their kind in Russia, providing supported accommodation as a viable alternative to care homes for people with disabilities. The project is being carried out by the non-profit League of Public Associations of Parents of Children with Disabilities (GAOORDI) in collaboration with the business community (LSR Group) and the government.

The first assisted living home was launched in St. Petersburg in June 2017, and the second one opened its doors in August 2019. At present, there are 19 people aged 18 to 54 living in each home, and servicing them are 24 employees working in shifts. Thanks to LSR Group’s support, the staff get a monthly bonus.

In 2020, the employees of both homes carried on with their work without any disruption, ensuring utmost comfort of the patients. In summer, they accompanied the residents to the countryside in the Solnechnoye settlement.

In honour of Social Worker Day on 8 June, President Vladimir Putin held a video meeting with the people engaged in the social sector across different Russian regions. He was joined by the GAOORDI President and Novaya Okhta residents.

Partnership with the Russian State Specialised Academy of the Arts

Since 2018, LSR Group has been a partner of the Russian State Specialised Academy of the Arts (RGSAI), the world’s only educational institution giving people with disabilities an opportunity to get a full higher education in arts. This partnership was a logical step in the development of our corporate social responsibility programme, whose key goals include supporting society’s most vulnerable groups, in particular children with developmental disorders. It gives talented young people with disabilities, some of whom have attended inclusive children’s centres supported by LSR Group, an opportunity to earn bachelor’s, master’s and postgraduate degrees in such subjects as music, fine arts and drama. They are also assisted with finding a job afterwards.

Reviving and preserving Russia’s cultural heritage

For many years, LSR Group has been taking an active role in projects which aim to develop Russian culture and preserve the nation’s historical and artistic heritage. In 2020, LSR Group continued to support the renovation of architectural monuments, allocating the needed building materials and funding for artistic, finishing and engineering works.

LSR Group also focuses on the development of contemporary arts and the support for educational and cultural projects. LSR Group regularly sponsors concerts for socially vulnerable groups and people with disabilities. In light of the pandemic, some events scheduled for 2020 were cancelled and some were moved online.
