Inclusion Europe is an association of people with intellectual disabilities and their families in Europe.
We started in 1988.
We fight for equal rights and full inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities and their families in all aspects of life.
As a European association we work in the many different areas which our members have identified as important to them:
- We provide for the exchange of knowledge across Europe
“Through Inclusion Europe I learn what my colleagues do in other countries.”
- We support our members.
“Inclusion Europe helps our organisation to become stronger.”
- We influence European policies.
“Inclusion Europe shapes European social policy according to our needs.”
Our Constitution sets out who we are and how we work.
Text: "About us" section
The main areas of our work are:
This means that people with disabilities are treated like all other people and are not treated differently because of their disability.
- Social Inclusion
This means that all people with intellectual disabilities can have the opportunity to take part fully in the life of society.
- Inclusive education
This is when pupils with intellectual disability get the support to go to the same school as everyone else.
- Legal capacity and access to justice
This means that people with intellectual disabilities must be treated fairly and equally by the law.
- Independent living
This means that people with intellectual disabilities can decide themselves where and who they want to live with.
This means that people with intellectual disabilities learn to speak up for themselves.
This means that things, places, events and information become accessible for people with intellectual disabilities.
