Regular activities
Residential Homes
This is a hosting service for adults with intellectual disabilities in small homes in a family atmosphere. Great importance is given to daily life, shared house duties, living together feasts and celebrations. The homes are a place where to live, grow and share.

 

At the moment we have two homes, Els Avets which hosts 9 users, and L’Olivera which hosts 8 people.

 

Occupational Centre (Workshop)
It is a pre-working place. We develop also activities to offer a comprehensive service to users and enable their integration in the pre-working, social and personal environment.


Currently 22 persons with intellectual disabilities are attending the Centre; 17 live in our houses and 3 live with their families in town or in near locations of the region.

 

Location
Moianès County is located in central Catalonia, about 50 km North of Barcelona. It has a rich historic, natural and cultural heritage. Avets homes and the workshop are in the centre of the village, in order to encourage the integration and independence of the handicapped persons. There is public Transport to Barcelona by bus.

 

GENERAL CONDITIONS
Language learning
Spanish and Catalan (the language spoken in our area, together with Spanish). Frequency of classes will depend on level and needs of volunteer.

 

Training and support
- The mentor will support the volunteer and follow up the progress of the volunteer in the organization. He/she will be listened to, supported, guided and helped with any matter needed. Meetings will take place as often as needed, usually every 15 days. At the beginning, the monitoring is done daily and is focused in giving information for a good integration. The volunteers receive special help to integrate with the local community.

 

Free days and vacations
Every week the volunteer will have two free days. The average schedule is 30 to 35 hours of service per week.


Besides these 2 weekly free days, every month the volunteer can take other two free days. The volunteer has also the possibility to use the free days for a longer vacation.

 

Lodging
The volunteer will lodge in the same house where disabled people are hosted. This means that he/she will get a single bedroom (it may happen that we ask the volunteer to share the room for special times; but it doesn’t happen often) and a key of the house so he/she can enter or leave the house in every moment. There is also the possibility to lodge in an apartment for volunteers during the second half of the voluntary service.
