Unicaja has shown its support one more year to the activities held in Salamanca to raise awareness on autism, a syndrome which affects 15,000 people in the province (many of them undiagnosed) and more than 450,000 in Spain. For this purpose, it has collaborated with the association Ariadna, which provides services to the families of these people.

 

Last Saturday, 13 April, Ariadna organized a big party in the Plaza de la Concordia in Salamanca, with the collaboration of Unicaja and other institutions and companies.

 

With many participants, playful-informative activities were developed with the aim of having a greater impact on society and transmitting the values of social inclusion of citizenship with respect to people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

 

The activities included the assembly of six large bounce castles for children, balloon twisting and face painting workshops, performances by musical groups, zumba classes, charangas and raffles, among others.

 

Support of Unicaja

Unicaja's support for this activity is part of its commitment to society and to the inclusion of groups with special needs, in order to achieve their welfare and that of their families.

 

It also responds to its support for diversity and equality, in the exercise of its sustainability policy, as well as to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a special focus on promoting universal social, economic and political inclusion (SDG 10.2).

 

Ariadna association has 78 members and 37 specialized professionals in charge of providing the care required by users with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the province.

 

Recently, the first home for people with autism was inaugurated, and it is expected that a second apartment will be added in 2024. The forecasts of its president, Carmen Calvo, are to have, in three or four years, a new Day Center to attend to this group.
