16 Apr The Terrassa City Council develops a sports guide with resources for people with disabilities
Nearly forty organizations have collaborated on this initiative
The Terrassa City Council, through the Office of Diversity Capacities and Accessibility, has developed a guide for sports resources adapted to people with diverse capabilities, which includes more than 60 proposals in thirty sport modalities. The guide, which has a web format, can be consulted at www.terrassa.cat/guiaesport-adaptat.
The activities are grouped according to the profile of the users, collecting proposals for people with intellectual and / or developmental disabilities, physical disability and / or cerebral palsy, sensory disabilities and disabilities related to mental health, in very diverse disciplines, both specialized and inclusive. The information, from 37 entities, clubs, services and federations, includes data of interest to the people concerned, such as the price, the level of autonomy required or the age to which each activity is addressed. This initiative promotes the right to information to people with disabilities and their families, and aims to make it easier for them to practice sports that best suits their needs and preferences. In addition, it aims to become a work tool to enhance and energize the existing adapted sports offer and, through networking, to continue improving and adapting to the needs of the city.
This action is part of the strategic axis “Leisure, free time, culture and sports” of the Local Plan for Attention to Various Capacities and Accessibility 2016-2020, and is added to the recently published Resource Guide of Leisure for people with different abilities, available from October with more than 70 inclusive and specialized leisure proposals. On this occasion, the guide has been elaborated with the collaboration of the Psychopedagogical Advisory Team (EAP) of Terrassa of the Department of Education of the Generalitat of Catalonia, the Sports Service of the City Council and the Entities of the Local Table of Diversity Capacities and Accessibility.
