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. At the end of October 2022 the number of people being assisted is 339. October closed with 40 new contracts, 34 internship contracts and 26 renewals. In total, there are 228 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.
In March 2022 Gerosa signed a 3-year agreement to sponsor Aura Fundació with 14,000€/year.
