Activity description

FUPAR is a private and non-profit social organization constituted as a Foundation in 1985, that 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 FUPAR 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. Although in the city of Terrassa there is a big offer (municipal and/or private) in the field of training, non-formal education and leisure, it’s difficult their participation. Either because of the person’s own idiosyncrasy or because only rarely the activities are available to their interests and capacities, and even more, in the case of adults with intellectual disabilities
