Social Initiative Entity
As a social-initiative entity, the Institut Guttmann is committed to the promotion, advocacy and effective equalisation of opportunities for persons with disabilities. To this end, in addition to hospital and scientific activities, the institute carries out specialised healthcare activities and various social activities, especially in the areas of prevention, outreach and social awareness.
“The Institut Guttmann, in addition to seeking to provide the best specialised health care to people with neurological disabilities, aims to contribute effectively to the full recognition of their rights and effective equalisation of opportunities.” Article 7 of its Statutes.
To be more effective in its social action, the Institut Guttmann has throughout its history maintained a close relationship with the main associations of people with physical disabilities, which has enabled a wide and effective framework for mutual cooperation.
