PortSolidari (Solidary Port)
In the Port of Tarragona we hold corporate social responsibility as the bastion of our organisational culture, which is why we establish relations with the main institutions in the social, cultural or commercial areas. At an internal level, we set up a social commission for the Port of Tarragona, PortSolidari, with the aim of channelling our workforce’s solidarity initiatives.
Thus PortSolidari arose from the confluence of two needs: to make the TPA’s employees participants in the company’s social responsibility on the one hand, and visualising the social activity of the people who make it up on the other. This project, designed in 2014, materialised during 2015.

The Port of Tarragona is CLOSING the 5th Call for Grants for social projects
The period for presenting social projects for the Port of Tarragona PortSolidari’s 4th call for Silvia Cuesta Grants for social projects is now open.

We want to introduce some of our actions, developed by our Port.
“Red Cross” toy collecting
We collaborate with the toy collecting campaign organised by the Tarragona Red Cross every Christmas for children between 4 and 12 years old.
Collecting food for the ‘Cafè i Caliu’ project
We collaborate with the collection of food and hygiene products for Caritas Tarragona’s “Café i caliu” (coffee and warmth) project that serves breakfast to homeless people and families in a precarious situation.
For some time now there has been a permanent campaign to collect clothing for Filigrana (part of the Càritas Tarragona charity). The Filigrana programme offers free clothing to people in need, as well as fostering socio-occupational training.
In the past two years Port Solidari has promoted creative and educational projects among different social groups in the neighbourhoods closest to the Port: El Serrallo and El Barri del Port. These projects are aimed at encouraging the participants to become involved in their neighbourhoods, creating a network between the neighbourhood organisations, and transforming some of the most deteriorated areas.
