New Paths to InclUsion Network is a European project bringing together 20 organisations, service-providers, universities and research centres from 14 European countries and Canada. Their overreaching objective is to facilitate the development of inclusive and person-centred support services for persons with disabilities empowering them to lead self-determined lives within their communities.

WHAT WE WANT

The Network aims to find new answers to its guiding questions:

“How can we make sure that support services respond to the individual needs of persons with disabilities and help them live included in the community? What kind of training & learning is necessary to make this happen?”

On this basis, the project seeks to equip organisations, service-providers and persons with disabilities with the knowledge, values and skills necessary to make sure that citizens with disabilities can actively participate in education, work, leisure, life and relationships in their community.

WHY?

Because:

  • Persons with disabilities have the RIGHT to person centred support that enables them to live in the community.
  • The European Union and most Member States ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
    In this way, they committed to making sure that persons with disabilities can get the support they need to live independently and take part in the community.
  • A high proportion of disability services are still provided on an institutional basis, in care homes which are isolated from the community.
  • The transition from institutional to community-based care requires organisations and carers to re-think the way support services for persons with disabilities are designed, organised and delivered.
