Fundación Diagrama Intervención Psicosocial is a non-profit organisation that has been assisting vulnerable and socially excluded people since 1991, consistently ensuring the defence and promotion of Human Rights.
Its main objective is to promote and develop centres, programmes and research aimed at social prevention, as well as treatment and integration of people at social risk, especially children, families, young people, women and dependants.
Through all these areas and activities, last year Fundación Diagrama attended to the needs of over 21,000 people across Spain, as well as close to 11,000 beneficiaries through international projects.
