Innovation, considering Diversity and Social Commitment

Our challenge is to innovate to respond to new problems, driven by our commitment to society.

The Health and Community Foundation (FSC) has worked for over 25 years in research, prevention, intervention, and awareness-raising on various health and social issues, especially affecting groups at risk in all their diversity, from a gender/feminist and intersectional approach. Its goal has always been to improve people’s quality of life and to facilitate social integration by promoting health and collective welfare.

Reaching the most vulnerable population is FSC’s main purpose, a challenge that arises from broad experience in different areas and disciplines, applying a new perspective that allows for innovative projects.

FSC has a strong commitment towards professionalism and ability to improve in order to adapt to new realities and social needs, thus meeting these new challenges.

General Aims

We define our areas of action from an eminently dynamic and multidisciplinary perspective.

  • Contributing to the promotion of health, social welfare and quality of life through the design of treatment, reintegration, legal support, research, training and consultancy projects and through the creation of different services to implement all these projects.
  • The issues the Foundation deals with do not belong to a specific health or social area. The Foundation tackles a large amount of health problems that merge with social and community realities. In other words, the Foundation works with health-related social issues.
  • These actions are targeted to all population groups and include all sorts of people’s social and health problems regardless of their age, sex, race, nationality and social condition. The target groups we primarily deal with are the most underprivileged or at risk: drug addicts, socially excluded people, women who have been abused, the elders, youth, immigrants, unemployed people, mentally ill people, etc.
  • Priority fields of intervention, although not only, are alcoholism, addictions to other substances, behavioural addictions, HIV-AIDS and other Sexual Transmitted Diseases, elderly-related issues, health education, prison inmate reintegration, physical and mental disabilities, and violence.
  • Specifically, the Foundation carries out cooperation actions for the development and promotion of solidarity among peoples.
  • Furthermore, the Foundation develops health promotion programmes in the community and in the workplace, with special consideration towards risk prevention at work.
  • In addition, the Foundation promotes health, quality of life and deals with behavioural issues among children and youth by designing and implementing prevention projects.
  • The Foundation can also exercise the legal tutelage and partial guardianship of people with mental disorders and other disabilities, old people with impaired judgement and volition faculties, according to law.
  • The Foundation attempts to involve and encourage society to actively take part in its initiatives, by promoting voluntary work, by cooperating with other similar organisations and by favouring an active cooperation with public and private agencies with which there are common objectives.
