The second edition of Inclusió.cat took as its central theme the promotion of personal autonomy and proximity care, ensuring that people with functional limitations receive the necessary care in their own home and within the community.
The event was inaugurated by Jordi Collet (Uvic’s Vice-Rector for Research and Knowledge Transfer), Nuria Homs (a Vic town councillor) and Chakir El Homrani (the Generalitat of Catalonia’s Minister of Labour, Social Affairs and Families).
During the presentation of the Strategic Social Services Plan, Minister el Homrani observed that public policies for people with functional limitations are facing new challenges, such as ane aging population and changes in the public’s expectations regarding the effective exercise of their rights, including that of personal autonomy. In this regard, he commented that the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Families is drawing up a draft document on the future Strategic Plan for Social Services.
The ministry’s main objective is to increase the coverage of social services focused on prevention rather than cure, in an attempt to offer care in the community which allows for personal autonomy. The minister declared that the aim was to “Serve more people, earlier and better, preventively and in their home environment. […] The individual at the centre of the whole process”.
