The group commitment but Teulada and the councilors not affiliated with those who formed the government, they will raise a full motion with proposals with which to give a solution to the problem of transport suffered by a group of residents in the municipality, users of the Maite Boronat Occupational Center which is located in Calp. This is a group of vulnerable residents, with functional diversity, who since last May have not had transportation to go to the center. As the Valencian spokesperson, Rosa Vila, explains, until then the City Council, through the volunteering of Civil protection, offered this service. At the end of last year the service ceased. It was expected to be resumed in September. But we are in the middle of October and they still do not have transportation to take them to the Occupational Center located in Ciudad del Peñón.
Faced with this situation, Valencian supporters and non-members urge the local government to immediately contract an adapted transport service with a driver to cover the course that has already begun, initiate a tender that shields the service for 4 years, discuss with the families of people with disabilities in the municipality the feasibility of creating a municipal occupational center and develop sports, cultural and leisure programming for people with different needs.
From Compromís and not attached, they emphasize that Teulada is a municipality that does not have any specialized center and specifically designed to guarantee the educational, social and occupational needs of the neighborhood with disabilities. This is why citizens look to neighboring towns for opportunities to exercise their right to access and participate in public life.
The assigned place is in danger
The current lack of transport has meant that some families from Teulada with users of the Maite Boronat Center have chosen not to take them to Calp. An Occupational Center created and managed by the Department of Social Policy of the Calpino City Council, publicly owned and with a regional scope of action.
Vila warns that this situation jeopardizes the reservation of the places assigned to Teulada users, since there is a waiting list and repeated non-attendance justifies leaving the granted place vacant. Nor does it consider it convenient that family members be the ones to carry out the transport without an adapted vehicle.
However, the spokesperson for Compromís urges the government to immediately contract an adapted transport service with a driver to cover the course that has already begun, and start a tender that shields the service for 4 years. Avoiding leaving these people helpless.
