Adissur in south Tenerife wants to expand services with sports
The Adissur association in Tenerife is seeking to expand its services through sport. Guía de Isora council and the General Directorate of Sports of the Government of Canary Islands held a meeting with the association recently, in which they valued their work and studied their proposals.
The association provides comprehensive care services for people with functional diversity and support for their families in the cultural centres of Guía de Isora and Tejina, both provided by the council. It is the only private entity of these characteristics in the southern region of the island.
After visiting the facilities, the president of Adissur José Francisco Concepción raised the possibility of increasing the sports offered by the association to the political leaders present.
Sr. Concepción proposed new activities to complement the existing ones explaining that “it is the best way for users to maintain a healthy lifestyle, muscle tone, psychomotricity and their physical well-being”.
“Currently, the council is providing both the swimming pool, the courts and the municipal gymnasium for physical maintenance, adapted sports and entertainment for the users and we hope to grow in the near future, ” he said.
The activities carried out in the municipal offices are financed by the omprehensive care service for people and families with intellectual disabilities and financed by the Canary Employment Service and the Public Service of State Service.
For Raquel Gutiérrez, first deputy mayor of Guía de Isora, “this meeting raises a new reference for people with disabilities and their families, something that is always welcome. From the council we are committed to growing in the field of sports because it promotes healthy living habits, but also integration. “
