The transition from institution- to community-based support for persons with disabilities is a complex process that requires multifaceted efforts. These include putting in place commitments and structures for achieving deinstitutionalisation and measuring outcomes for persons with disabilities. This report shows that effectively funding the deinstitutionalisation process is a vital element.

Further information

Bridging the gap between the promise of Article 19 and the reality that persons with disabilities experience likely requires a shift in the way services are funded. A great deal of knowledge and experience in each of these areas is being gathered across EU Member States. This report and the two other reports in FRA’s three-part series dedicated to this topic provide important insights that can support ongoing processes of change.
