The Fundación Jesús Serra supports Apadema in its mission to assist adults with disabilities. The association helps them to develop their personality and to integrate into society.
The Fundación Jesús Serra has been collaborating with Apadema (the Association of Parents for the Promotion and Support of Adults with Mental Disabilities) for over twelve years, helping to organise its annual charity paddle tennis tournament. Through this tournament, in which employees of the Grupo Catalana Occidente take part, the Fundación promotes the association's work, as well as raising funds for its mission.
The main goal of this non-profit organisation, which was set up in 1983 by a group of parents with grown-up children affected by mental disabilities, is to promote, cure and treat adults with mental disabilities to ensure they receive the necessary support in order to develop their personality and their integration into society.
Thanks to the support of companies such as ours, Apadema has been able to continue providing support to women affected by moderate and severe mental disabilities, providing services to users with limited financial means, and developing new programmes to help participants develop personal autonomy and join the job market, thus facilitating their integration into society.
