CALVIÀ TOWN HALL RENEWS THE COLLABORATION AGREEMENT WITH THE ASSOCIATION OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES OF CALVIÀ (ASDICA)
The grant is intended for the Youth Group Project and the physiotherapy service
Calvià Town Hall has renewed its commitment to collaborate with the Calvià Association of People with Disabilities (ASDICA) for the next 4 years. The mayor of Calvià, Alfonso Rodríguez Badal, and the president of ASDICA, Joan Venys, signed the agreement that involves a subsidy of 14.850 euros per year.
The agreement aims to carry out a project of free time activities for teenagers and young people residing in the municipality of Calvià, with a diagnosed capacity equal to or greater than 33%. It is an initiative that was launched 16 years ago and for which an amount of 9.000 euros is awarded. Amongst others, they carry out activities such as theatre, drums performance, zumba, reading clubs and leisure outings.
The agreement also includes 5.850 euros for the physiotherapy service for members of ASDICA who, due to a chronic illness, regularly need a physiotherapy service (a service that Social Security does not cover after the acute phases of the diseases).
In addition, a change of premises is promoted to the Association that had been developing activities in the Son Ferrer CREC premises to carry them out in another municipal premises also located in Son Ferrer.
The signing ceremony was also attended by the Deputy Mayor for Social Cohesion, Nati Francés; the councillor for Social Development, M. Carmen Rojano, and the general director for Social Development, Cristina Gamundí.
