Inclusion Europe’s annual report has officially been published and it includes various topics such as EPSA activities in 2021, publications, policy and accessibility information, and more.
Our organisation’s mission is to fight for equal rights and the full inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities and their families in all aspects of society.
The annual report refers as well to our 5-year strategy, more specifically to the 5Es objectives; empower, elect, educate, employ, and end segregation. Last year’s topic was employment; the campaign refers to the importance of having a job and it contains personal statements from people with intellectual disabilities. Everyone has the right to work and having a job means having more freedom over one’s choices and life.
The Employ campaign was a multi format campaign that included articles, webpages, videos, infographics, podcast episodes, and graphics on social media. The Employ campaign recorded 293,760 impressions on social media channels. The campaign informed about ongoing discrimination against people with intellectual disabilities in the labour market and showed ways to improve it. It initiated discussions on how to make inclusive employment happen everywhere in Europe.
