For more than 10 years, the Sanitas Foundation has promoted Inclusive Sport, defined as the joint practice of sport between people with and without disabilities. Through different projects that start from early childhood education, the goal is that everyone, regardless of their physical condition, can access and enjoy sport, shared leisure and social integration.

Through an agreement with the Polytechnic University of Madrid, this chair has been established with aims to promote inclusive sport through education, and the objective of carrying out an academic and scientific analysis of the processes of inclusion in sport and, simultaneously, raising awareness and promoting activism among the intervening agents.
Through an agreement with the Spanish Paralympic Committee, the Inclusive Sports in Education (ISE) program was created with the aim of giving visibility to the inclusive sports practice of people with disabilities in educational centers. The project is also very important for teachers, who use it as a tool to work with their students to raise awareness about disability.Visit website
