FRA discusses deinstitutionalisation in Italy

On 13 February in Rome, the Agency will present to Italian stakeholders the findings of its recent reports on deinstitutionalisation for people with disabilities.

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 Italy 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 Italy.
