Collaborating organisation: Ramon Molinas Foundation.
Dates of implementation: 04/07/2016 – 03/07/2021.
A new space to improve care for people with intellectual disabilities and other developmental disorders
The Ramon Molinas Foundation is collaborating with Aspanias, transferring the organisation to a new 211 square meter premises located on Calle Cartagena in Barcelona. The transfer, lasting five years, will improve the organisation’s infrastructure, improving care for the increasing number of families assisted in recent years. The new space will hold the Aspanias Therapeutic Care Service (SAT) and its administration, communication, leisure and volunteer departments. Aspanias will therefore be able to assign the headquarters on Calle Enamorats, Ciudad Condal to the Early Intervention and Child Development Centre (CDIAP).
Aspanias seeks to improve the quality of life of people with intellectual disabilities and other developmental disorders by providing comprehensive and personalised care and promoting social inclusion. In the new centre, the organisation will provide speech therapy, pedagogical care and social care, and will hold physiotherapy, psychomotricity and music therapy sessions.
Aspanias, an award-winning association with a long history
The Aspanias association was created in 1962 by a group of parents worried about the needs of their children. Its objective was to work towards achieving the normalisation and social integration of people with intellectual disabilities. Over more than 50 years the organisation has dedicated itself to fulfilling the needs of this group, from young children to elderly patients. The association, which helps 400 people annually, was declared a non-profit organisation in 1970 and the Catalan local government awarded it the Cross of Saint George on the 3rd December 1987.
Aspanias has a network of assisted apartments and residences, and an Early Intervention and Child Development Centre (CDIAP) which looks after children from zero to six years old. It also provides a Psychological Care Centre for Adults, a Leisure Service and an Orientation and Information Service.
