Since 2012 Invest for children has been committed to the workplace inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities through the project Aura Fundación. Aura Fundación was the first “Supported Employment” programme in Spain, pioneer in the implementation and development of this methodology. The mission of Aura Fundación is to help improve the quality of life of people with intellectual disabilities through social and inclusion at work place following the “Supported Employment” methodology. In April 2023 there were 361 people being assisted. 287 people are part of the Aura Supported Employment Programme. In April 2023, the number of new contracts was 36. In total, there are 250 jobs in companies such as DABA Nespresso, Penguin Random House and CaixaBank. Thank you to all the companies that make inclusion at work place a reality.
From March 2022 Gerosa signed a 3-year agreement to sponsor Aura Fundació with 14,000€/year.
