A Cooperation at local level in a European context
The European Association of Service Providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD) based in Brussels coordinates the project.
EASPD represents over 10.000 social service provider organisations across Europe and across disability. All together these services employ several millions of staff in the social and health care sector. The main objective of EASPD, based on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2006), is to promote the equalisation of opportunities for people with disabilities through effective and high quality service systems. EASPD believes in interdependence and partnership of users organisations, providers and authorities at all levels to tackle the challenges ahead. More info www.easpd.eu
