Supporting a person to establish their new life during deinstitutionalisation

Every person leaving an institution needs support in establishing a new life, and in overcoming the harm and trauma caused by institutionalisation.

Presentation of principles and some examples of supporting people with intellectual disabilities to live independently and to be included.

With particular focus on support for people leaving “care” institutions.

I made this presentation during a meeting of Sub-group on independent living of the Disability Platform (organised by the European Commission), on 23 June 2023.
