Barriers to Independent Living

Every year on the 5th May, the European Network on Independent Living celebrates the European Independent Living Day! The theme for this year’s celebrations was “Barriers to Independent Living”.

Local disabled people who attended the Independent Living Surgery  in May discussed what Independent Living means, and looked at the “12 basic rights for disabled people” to identify which barriers to living an independent life still exist.

The report that attendees contributed is available here: Barriers to Independent Living (pdf) or Barriers to Independent Living  Large Print 18pt (pdf)
