The Consell de Mallorca and the Asnimo Foundation have been working hand-in-hand for twenty years now, and Catalina Cladera visited the Foundation to mark the occasion.

On July 13, the president of the Consell de Mallorca, Catalina Cladera, and the councillor for Social Rights and president of the Mallorcan Institute of Social Affairs (IMAS), Sofia Alonso, visited the headquarters of the Asnimo Foundation in Marrachi. The Consell has been collaborating with the organisation through IMAS for two decades now.

Catalina Cladera said: “For more than 20 years, we have been working with this organisation to support people with disabilities throughout their lives and to meet their individual needs regarding integration into the workplace, access to housing and support so that they have the same opportunities.”

During the visit, Cladera and Alonso met with the manager of the Asnimo Foundation, Bartomeu Márquez, who explained the various programmes they run. The organisation has been working with people with functional diversity in Mallorca for almost 50 years. Most of them have Down’s syndrome or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), although some have other types of disability. Its model of care focuses on each individual and their specific needs.
