Donations

Cheshire Friendship Homes Foundation manages eight centres in Catalonia that provide the necessary care and assistance to people with physical disabilities. Its main activity is funded by the Department of Social Rights of the Generalitat de Catalunya. Otherwise, disinterested donations can help us carry out complementary activities for our residents. Such as canine therapy, parties, or the purchase of new equipment.

Volunteering

Volunteering is one of the connecting points of our users with society.

Many of the day-to-day tasks outside the centre could hardly be accomplished without the help of volunteers. People who, in an altruistic way spend part of their time helping others.

Guided by the directors, the volunteers keep the residents company, accompany them on their private outings and participate in group recreational activities. More than 200 volunteers are currently collaborating with the Foundation.
Volunteers are insured while in the performance of their duties.

For more information, call 93 451 46 19 or write to the centre where you want to volunteer. See the Contact section.

How can you collaborate?

Depending on your profession, skills, leisure, age and, above all, a generous attitude towards people with disabilities. In short, in one way or another, everyone can collaborate.

What can I do?

Some of your tasks may be to accompany residents on a walk, a shopping or cinema trip, and in many cases, to become a good friend of the resident.

Whatever the case, depending on your profession, aptitudes, free time and age. If you have the will to collaborate, we will surely be able to find a suitable activity. Everyone can help.

    Residences

    The residences are centres that we call “llars” (homes) to emphasize the spirit of the Foundation: that the residents feel that it is their “home”. They are centres with a 24-hour comprehensive care service, where we offer our residents all the necessary care so that they can live with maximum independence in a comfortable environment.

    Our objectives

    To give quality of life to people by offering them a space adapted to the needs of people with physical disabilities, help in their daily life to enhance their autonomy and support in the tasks for which they need more help. We also attend to individual rehabilitation and therapeutic needs.

    Finally, we want it to be a real home for all residents; we want to be part of their closest circle of friends and family.

    We focus on residents

    • We promote their participation in their environment and their cultural education.
    • We carry out activities to maintain and improve their personal autonomy and independent living.
    • We provide our support to carry out their private and leisure activities.

    • We take their wishes into account.
