Agafa't al 21
During the year 2015-2016, the project "Agafa’t al 21", initiative implemented by Associació Down Tarragona, managed to achieve its main objective of working to ensure full integration of people affected by Down’s Syndrome and other intellectual disabilities into social and working environments and allow them to live independently.
The Association has managed to arrange a total of 6 jobs at ordinary companies, 5 adults took internships at ordinary companies (12 companies have worked with the project).
To complement the theoretical training given to young people and adults, they were also provided with a total of 382 hours of basic and vocational training, involving up to 63 company support and monitoring actions and 88 actions to support families.
With the support of the PortAventura Foundation, we make employment possible for the people of Tarragona affected by Down’s Syndrome and intellectual disabilities who are involved in this project.
Around 458 people with Down’s Syndrome (2015 data) live in the province of Tarragona and Associació Down Tarragona develops programmes and services aimed at improving the quality of life of people with Down’s Syndrome and other intellectual disabilities and their families.
