The prize has been collected by the General Director of the Civil Guard, Félix Azón
A total of 40 people with intellectual or developmental disabilities have carried out work practices in Civil Guard units
The General Director of the Civil Guard, Félix Azón, has received the “Plena Inclusión Madrid 2019” prize awarded to the Civil Guard for his contribution to the social inclusion of people with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
The event, in which the Municipal Transport Company of Madrid, the Thyssen-Bornemisza museum and the singer-songwriter “La Mare” have also been awarded, was held today at the CaixaForum in Madrid.
These awards recognize the initiative of institutions such as the Civil Guard, which has already facilitated the development of work practices in different units of the Community of Madrid to 40 people with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Through the agreement signed last year with Full Inclusion, two internship periods were set and a third party is currently being developed.
In his thanks, the director general of the Civil Guard has described this agreement as "excellent" for being a personal stimulus and incentive for both students and members of the Corps who have contributed first to this work of inclusion.
The director general has thanked the award of this award to the Civil Guard that in its 175 years of history has treasured the professional baggage of all civil guards “who have preceded us and that, thanks to their effort and dedication, left us a great legacy of commitment to citizens, our reason for being ”.
Azón has stressed that this commitment is strengthened day by day, and that it is extended by entities such as Plena Inclusión Madrid, whose dedication and commitment to the effective inclusion of people with intellectual or developmental disabilities, makes it possible for concepts such as visibility , diversity and inclusion are more easily impregnated in a society in which stereotypes can become prejudices.
In this sense, Azón has stated that the Civil Guard understands as “highly beneficial”, the exploitation of its resources and the application of its experience in the protection of the most vulnerable or at risk of exclusion.
In addition, the CEO has congratulated the rest of the winners for "their relevant contribution to the development of educational and professional training of people with disabilities, as well as their social and labor inclusion."
