The Prince of Asturias Foundation and the ONCE Foundation for Cooperation and Social Inclusion of People with Disabilities have signed an agreement with the aim of establishing a general framework of cooperation between the two foundations to foster and facilitate accessibility at the activities that the Prince Asturias Foundation undertakes, especially those related to the Prince of Asturias Awards Ceremony.

The president of the ONCE Foundation, Miguel Carballeda, and the director of the Prince of Asturias, Teresa Sanjurjo, signed this agreement in a ceremony held at headquarters of the General Council of the ONCE Foundation in Madrid.

The agreement recognizes the interest of both institutions “in providing access for people with disabilities in all activities of social and cultural life in the belief that any type of educational and cultural expression must be open to all without limitation. It seeks, in short, to improve the living, social and cultural conditions of people with disabilities” Both parties agree on the advisability of joining forces in pursuit of this goal.

This agreement sets in motion a progressive action plan to achieve universal accessibility. The planned actions are intended to reduce, through enabling technologies, the limitations of people with a physical and/or sensorial, both in the holding of events and in the access to buildings that host them or the support in which information is provided.

The main aim of the ONCE Foundation is the financing and development of programmes that promote the full social integration of people with disabilities through employment, training and universal accessibility.
