Inclusion Europe has been working
on the topic of community living
for many years.

Since then, many things have changed.
Some countries have changed their laws
and moved people with intellectual disabilities
out of institutions.

Inclusion Europe wrote a text called “Included in society”.
In this text we talk about:

  • Why institutions are bad

We have also talked about community living
in many other projects.

And we are also part of a European group
working to help moving people from institutions
to the community.
