Would you join us? Supporting people with Functional Diversity
Description: The Occupational Center of Sínia (www.cosinia.cat) is a day care service that offers its participants the services of occupational therapy and personal and social adjustment, which due to their degree of disability can not be integrated nor work in an ordinary company nor continue with standardized channels of training. It is located in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona.
It is a public center dependent on the Department of Welfare and Family, managed by a professional cooperative. We assist 45 people with severe physical disability, most affected by cerebral palsy in order to improve their quality of life.
Type of Work: Volunteers will be working on: support for the personal and social autonomy of the people we serve, support for excursions, daily life activities, trips to the beach, the various routes prepared and participation in the various workshops that we propose, where they will have an opportunity to interrelate with the users of the center, etc.
Work time will be from 9am to 3pm from Monday to Friday.
Study Theme: We would like to reflect on the situation of people with functional diversity in their countries of origin, their rights, their presence in society, start a project that could last through social networks. Explain what our position is about. We also talk about cities from an emotional point of view, if they are welcoming for everyone, if they have prejudices, etc. And explain our participation in the process of rethinking Las Ramblas in Barcelona.
Accommodation: Volunteers will stay in the flat SCI-Catalunya used for hosting volunteers during work camps. Food will be provided by the center and special dietary needs will be taken into account.
Language: English, Spanish and Catalan.
Requirements: Motivation letter stating your experience working with people with disabilities (if any) and explaining why you wish to attend the camp.
Approximate Location: The Gothic Quarter, Barcelona.
Notes: We are in contact with many of the neighborhood entities and During this month of July, we strengthen these links, which will have the opportunity to interact with other groups, young people, children, people with intellectual disabilities, etc.
