The European Union has approved the work-life balance directive 

The work-life balance directive can be very positive 

for people with intellectual disabilities. 

It allows their parents and carers to have more time free 

so that they can spend together. 

Now every country in the European Union 

has to apply the work-life balance directive.  

The governments are in charge of doing this task. 

We ask governments to apply the work-life balance directive 

as fast as possible. 


We think it’s important that: 

  • Parents or carers get paid even when they don’t go to work 
  • Governments collaborate with NGOs 
  • Governments recognize that there are different kinds of families 

Our work brings the voice of people with intellectual disabilities and their families where decisions about their future are made.

This has always been incredibly important. It is even more so with the Covid pandemic drastic impact on their rights and lives.

Being visible and vocal on issues directly affecting millions of people requires your support.
