  • Coordinator: José Manuel Giménez Gómez (josemanuel.gimenez@urv.cat)
  • Community organization: Pere Mata Foundation
  • Summary: This proposal can be traced back to the 1st Social Projects Marketplace and was developed the academic year 2014-15. People with severe mental disorders have traditionally had considerable difficulties to access the ordinary labor market. Since 2005, the Pere Mata Foundation has been working with a Special Work Centre that currently provides 90 people with protected work.
