Who we are

The Spastics Society of Northern Greece (SSNG) was founded in 1970 in Thessaloniki as an association for the parents of spastic children and became the Spastics Society of Northern Greece in 1980. Its members are parents of children and youths with special needs, handicapped persons themselves as well as interested friends. According to its Charter, the majority of the Board of Directors belong to the handicapped and their parents.

The Spastics Society of Northern Greece (SSNG) is a specially recognized charitable body (according to law 1111/72) supervised and funded by the Ministry of Health and Welfare. It is also a member of the Panhellenic Federation of Parents’ and Guardians’ Societies of Handicapped People.

The SSNG’s objectives are on the one hand to provide services to the disabled and their families, and on the other, to help bring about suitable conditions in the community for the integration of the handicapped on an equal basis.
