Q&A

Guiding questions:
-Why is independent living important for persons with disabilities? What are the main dimensions which matter to users of independent living services?
-How can service providers better support users who wish independently?
-How can we keep innovating in the development of independent living initiatives? What has been the impact of the pandemic on this topic?
-How should we consider the fact that some countries are more or less advanced in the deinstitutionalisation process, and what should be the role of EASPD in supporting stakeholders in these various contexts?
-What are our next steps and priorities for inclusive community living?
