Our secretariat

We are a small team based in Brussels working to track European Union (EU) policy and proposals relevant to persons with disabilities and coordinating inclusive disability rights advocacy accordingly.

Our policy teams work with member organisations through the Committees and expert groups to produce comprehensive guidance that includes perspectives from a range of disabilities, sectors, and countries, and support the national advocacy of our members.
