EASPD Knowledge Café: Personal Budgets System in Flanders, Belgium
The Knowledge and Innovation Team invite you to learn more about the Personal Budget System in Flanders, Belgium.
VAPH is an Agency of the Flemish regional government that aims to promote participation, integration, and equal opportunities for persons with a disability in all areas of social life by allocating personal budgets to fulfill their care and support needs. Their goal is to help persons with a disability lead a better and more independent life.
EASPD together with VAPH and other 7 partners work on UNIC, a project with the goal to help public authorities to implement user-centred funding models, such as personal budgets. The project is also aimed at helping service users in long term care and support (LTCS) to move to these funding models, as well as their service providers.
The EASPD Knowledge and Innovation Team is excited to share the VAPH’s model with participants to improve their knowledge and capacity on this important subject.
