Barcelona Inclusive Sport training plan

Pursuing physical activities and sport helps to improve everyone’s quality of life, particularly those who are more vulnerable as a result of a disability, and provides a positive impact on key aspects such as health, inclusion and social cohesion in the city.

For this reason, there is a need for an inclusive sport programme like Barcelona Esport Inclou [Inclusive Sport], aimed specifically at people with a physical or intellectual disability, hearing or visual impairment, and/or mental disorder who live in Barcelona. The programme’s training plan aims to provide tools, resources and knowledge for staff who work in this area.
