Ciutats i Comunitats Sostenibles

Guttmann Barcelona Life is a social facility consisting of a group of fully adapted and automated apartments. In addition, the initiative provides a complementary portfolio of personal and support services specifically aimed at promoting personal autonomy and independent living.

Guttmann Barcelona Life is an initiative of the Institut Guttmann designed to promote the autonomy and quality of life of people with disabilities. The goal is that they can develop an active, inclusive independent lifestyle and live their life in their own way.

There is capacity for up to 40 GBL apartments and they will be put into operation gradually. During 2020, a total of 35 users enjoyed this service, representing an average occupancy of 69%.
