EVS in FUPAR – Terrassa

Place: Terrassa (Catalonia)
Dates: from September 15th 2018 to July 15th 2019

WHO ARE WE
The Amat Roumens Foundation, FUPAR is a private and non-profit social organization created in 1985. Our objective was to answer the proposal by a group of parents who wanted to have training and social inclusion of their children with disabilities.
The project started from a new approach in our country, based on occupational employment as a way of inclusion, and at that time it meant an innovative experience in Spain. FUPAR offers attention to more than 330 people with disabilities. Each of the people attended, in accordance with their capacities and autonomy, receive the most appropriate support. The management and support staff is made up of more than 80 professionals and volunteers.
The Leisure Service of the Foundation organizes and fosters the participation of people with intellectual disabilities in socio-educational and sports activities, as a platform to improve personal autonomy and social inclusion.
