LIVING WITH GOOD SUPPORTS
Josep Tresserras, director manager of Som – Fundació, has participated in the online seminar Viure amb bons suports, (Living with good supports) celebrated on April 7th, organised by Plena Inclusión España and Asociación Española de Fundaciones Tutelares (AEFT). The aim of the session was that the member entities could share their experience about the adaptation of supports to the persons with intellectual disabilities and their families within the programme of Plan of Future in the coronavirus crisis.
After the presentation of the foundation, Josep Tresserras explained the changes carried out in the entity to adapt ourselves to the crisis generated by the Covid-19 and the continuation of the support to the decision making of the persons with intellectual disability we care. Besides, he highlighted the importance of giving support to the users in the management of the financial resources since it is very convenient for them to know their situation and their awareness of their financial capability.
In his presentation, he explained the system created in the foundation to break down the barriers of bank entities and allow users to acces to their financial resources and manage them with the support of a juridical entity.
In his final presentation, Josep gave details of some of the different casuistry that has been adopted in this situation of confinement with the aim of guarantee that the users have enough resources to face their needs.
This seminar had also the participation of Enrique Galván, director of Plena Inclusió, Ignacio Recondo, vice president of AEFT, Fausto García, director of service of adults of the Associació BATA, Gorka Muñiz, responsible of Pretutela de Futubide, and Mayte Peña, phycologist of Futucam.
