Last June 20th, the trustees of Som — Fundació and Fundació Terres de Lleida signed a merger by absorption agreement. Through this agreement, the Lleida entity will become part of our foundation. This union, which will be effective when the registration is carried out in the Protectorate of the Department of Justice, will not involve any change in the day-to-day life of the persones that they support, nor in that of the staff, who will continue working as now.
At Som — Fundació we happily welcome this new responsibility with enthusiasm, which involves the incorporation of around a hundred new persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities to our organization. At the same time, we hope that it will serve to improve the quality of life of users residing in the province of Lleida, to whom we will support the legal capacity in decision-making so that they can build their life project, based on their wishes and preferences.
