Table Third Sector, who groups over 3.000 Catalan social organizations, presented the report ‘Improving Basic Social Services in Catalonia. A proposal from the Third Sector’, whit the participation of Suara Cooperativa.
The report was presented during a new edition of the cycle of Debates ‘Social Catalonia’ by its coordinator, Josep Maria Pascual, and was held at Ateneu Barcelonès. After that, there was a discussion with three experts from social organizations: Paco Pardo (Caritas Diocesan Girona), Ramon Nicolau (APIP Foundation-ACAM) and Elisenda Xifre, Public and Institutional Client Area Manager of Suara Cooperativa.
The report analyzes the current situation of most basic social services in Catalonia, especially in municipalities with more than 20,000 inhabitants, as well as forms of co-operation with social organizations. The report also aims to raise the importance of SBAS, social organizations and volunteers as a tool for social inclusion.
