Discrimination hurts deep down inside!”

This is what
a young woman with intellectual disabilities once said.

People with intellectual disabilities
are often discriminated against
and excluded.

Each European country
has laws
that protect people with disabilities
from being discriminated against
when they look for a job.

The UN CRPD says
that people with disabilities
must have the same human rights
as everyone else.

Inclusion Europe works a lot
to make sure that these rights
are respected.

Mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters
are also often discriminated against
when a member of their family
has a disability.

Inclusion Europe
also fights for the rights
of family members
of people with intellectual disabilities.

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.
