The FIRAH signs ADMICAL charter

Published in 2011 by Admical, the Charter of corporate philanthropy gave, for the first time, a definition to corporate philanthropy. It gathers and commits more than 200 corporate philanthropy stakeholders around a common vision on the philanthropy relationship, its ethic and values: free commitment in favor of the public interest, equality and mutual respect between the company and the beneficiary… The charter allows them to share the same language. It gives a frame to their relationship while allowing them to express their creativity, their freedom and their innovation spirit through their philanthropy policy.


By signing the Charter of corporate philanthropy, the FIRAH agrees to respect to the principles settled by the charter in order to reinforce the matter of trust and exchange with the sponsors.

APAJH's national seminar

APAJH, which is a main association focusing on all disabilities, invites people with disabilities and the stakeholders supporting them to go deeper on a topic and share their professional practices during the seminar that will take place in Paris on March 29th of 2013.


Nowadays, a true cultural change happens with the decompartmentalization of the social and healthcare sector. New issues are coming, linked to the complementarity of those two areas and to the Hospital, Patients, Health and Territories act of 2009. Today, it is necessary to think of the delimitation of the skills and know-how of everyone and understand better the conceivable synergies. This only aims to improve accompanied people's life while offering them the best possible care, within the framework of an adapted life project.


Between inventories, thoughts on stakes and recommendations, this day will allow to understand better the 2013 sanitary and healthcare landscape.


The seminar will be divided in two parts. In the morning, the question, “Disability and health care, what are the observations?”, will be studied, answers will be given with testimonies. During the afternoon, a round table will be organized and called: “Hospital, Patients, Health and Territories” Act: means of coordination and synergies for the sanitary and healthcare sector.


Participation is free of charge, registration required, within the limits of available places.


To register call 01 44 10 23 40 or go to the official APAJH website.
