We have launched the pilot of FLAPP!, the new app for teenagers and young people developed by iSocial
120 adolescents and young people under guardianship and ex-guardianship, between 16 and 23 years old, and their educational references, linked to 10 centers and resources from different towns in the territory, will experience the app for 3 months and a UB team will evaluate it social impact.
With this incorporation, the entities that make up the iSocial board are now eight: Ampans, Associació Benestar Desenvolupament-ABD, Suport-Fundació Tutelar Girona, Fundació Família i Benestar Social, Grup ATRA, Fundació Joia, Fundació Catalana Síndrome de Down, and now also the Resilis Foundation.
Having reached 20,000 inhabitants, it must take on this new responsibility, which until now depended on the County Council.
A lecture by Dr. Carles Alsinet from the UdL inaugurates the 2nd part of the Postgraduate Course in Social Services of ACM-UB-iSocial
The course is aimed at Social Services professionals from the 937 City Councils and County Councils that are members of the ACM (Catalan Association of Municipalities). It has resumed this September after an interruption of several months due to the Covid19 pandemic.
In the workshops, citizens answer a questionnaire to find out the impact of Covid19 on local Social Services. All 105 Basic Areas of Social Services in Catalonia, municipal and regional, participate in the study.
With this incorporation, there are now seven social entities that make up the iSocial board: Ampans, Associació Benestar Desenvolupament-ABD, Support-Fundació Tutelar Girona, Fundació Família i Benestar Social, Grup ATRA, Fundació Joia, and now also the FCSD.
In a manifesto, we propose to rethink the model of all long-term care, covering all the services and supports that older people needs, both in the residential and at home, and with the support of the community.
In addition to the iSocial Foundation and the University of Lleida (UdL), researchers from the universities of Barcelona (UB), València (UV) and Pompeu Fabra (UPF), and the Fundació Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia also participate.
iSocial and UPC have started a study to predict the impact that COVID19 will have on the Social Services of the municipalities
The Catalan Government, ACM, FMC and the Barcelona Regional Government are taking part. The prospective study INESS-COVID19 aims to know the vulnerabilities of the Catalan population in the coming months and provide elements of decision that allow the 104 Basic Areas of Social Services of Catalonia to deal with them.
