Building capacities to use EU funding for community-based care

The European Commission is running on 21 May in Bratislava a capacity building seminar on moving towards independent living and community based care.

It aims to improve the capacity of actors at local, regional and national levels to develop measures supporting the transition from institutional to community-based services for people with disabilities, using EU funding.

This seminar will look into the specific situation in Slovakia and particularly focus on personal assistance and personal budgets to facilitate independent living.

The agency has been involved in preparing the seminar and will provide input to the discussion by presenting findings from the case study report for Slovakia based on the agency’s work on independent living.
