FRA discusses deinstitutionalisation reports in Finland

The Agency will present the findings of its recent reports on deinstitutionalisation for people with disabilities to Finnish stakeholders on 11 January in Helsinki.

The three FRA reports look at: deinstitutionalisation plans and commitments; funding; and the impact this is having on people with disabilities. The meeting will allow people involved in the deinstitutionalisation process in Finland to reflect on the findings presented in the reports and discuss how some of the challenges they raise can be tackled to make deinstitutionalisation a reality on the ground in Finland.
