Mission and vision
The iSocial Foundation develops innovation in Catalonia social-action sector, based on a strategic and forward-looking vision and in a systematic and result-oriented way, in order to contribute to the progress of social- welfare system and improve its transformative impact on society.
We are moved by the firm belief that the social action sector needs to innovate in order to continue guarantying its transformative impact on society and on the most vulnerable people and communities; that it needs to invest in knowledge to review the validity of the concepts that support its action; and that it needs to equip itself with tools, procedures, new models, and new professional practices to respond to the current social challenges and to anticipate to future ones.
With this aim, the iSocial Foundation wants to act as a hinge between the fields of knowledge and action, being a bridge between universities, legislative and regulatory institutions, service-providing administrations and social entities, and innovative, technology companies.
The iSocial Foundation aspires to: a society in which the human rights of citizens, in all their diversity, are real and effective; a social -welfare system in which people can choose their life project and become a protagonists; to a sector of social action oriented to excellence, continuous improvement, and lifelong learning that interacts with the rest of sectors, evaluates the transformative impact of its intervention, and that is open to change and constant innovation to give new and better answers to social needs.
