Summary

LUCAS European Sport Collaborative Partnership (IT, BE, CY, DK, ES, LT, PT) aims to create a stable European network for sharing information, expertise & good practices in terms of models of rehabilitation through Sport, for the successful reintegration of people with acquired disability from traumatic brain injury & spinal cord injury (in particular resulting from a coma) & their families/caregivers.The partnership will develop & test a structured, multidisciplinary & integrated experimental methodology of rehabilitation through sport for these people. It will be a comprehensive rehabilitation plan assisted by qualified personnel aimed not only to a physical rehabilitation but also to a successful social reintegration of people with acquired disability & their families.It has been shown that the final outcome of a patient with severe brain injury depends largely on having a collaborative & supportive family. This is the reason why the project strongly work on the families by using the important & global element of sports to help them to break free from the drama of the accident made up of fear, disorientation, anxiety, loneliness & to become a real resource. Persons with acquired disabilities & their families will take part in multidisciplinary sport activities, also together, during pilot actions. The use of sport in group activities allows the exchange of experiences, the re-socialization, the overcoming of boundaries beyond the limits, the strengthening of self-esteem, the enhancement of the experience, the rediscovery of the residual abilities.A common program of events & initiatives to raise awareness will be promoted, also with the first "European Day of Awakenings". Through sport we can provide opportunities for participation to people at risk of exclusion from the community following a dramatic break of the life project (awakenings from "suspended lives") & to build networks of solidarity & voluntary work around these people (awakening of community).
