BREAKING NEWS: On April 10th – 1 year after the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities released its first General Comment – the EU PERSON partnership launched a 12 week campaign on the ‘Right to Act.’ We wish to publicize the importance of legal capacity for people with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities and the problems of guardianship law and other restrictive systems. Have a look at our campaign website or even better, sign the declaration to support the right for people with disabilities to direct their own lives! Over the next 12 weeks we’ll be sharing stories and tools for change. We will lobby governments and public bodies, and we’ll be having various actions to promote the ‘right to act’ for all.

Our objective: To increase competencies of Balkan Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) on both regional and national levels to strategically advocate and monitor reforms affecting persons with psycho-social and intellectual disabilities.
