Unlocking Freedom through Adult Education; The role of adult education in supporting the de-institutionalisation of people with disabilities in the community

The Disability Federation of Ireland is leading a KA2 Erasmus+ Project.  The project is called “Unlocking Freedom through Adult Education; The role of adult education in supporting the de-institutionalisation of people with disabilities in the community”. De-institutionalisation is a priority of the EU, identified in the European Disability Strategy and Article 19 of the UN CRPD, already ratified by the EU.  There are also Common European Guidelines on the transition from institutional to community-based care. This project works towards building the capacity and everyday life skills of people with intellectual disabilities moving from institutions to homes in the community, through:

 

·         7 EU-wide Partners developing tools & sharing learning on de-institutionalisation

·         Developing a tool for assessing the Independent Living training needs of adults with intellectual disabilities who are moving from institutional to community & / independent living

·         Training programme (delivered through train the trainer) and manual for Independent living skills

·         Toolkit and publication on nutritional support through the de-institutionalization process

·         Research on Deinstitutionalization in an institution

·         Training People with Disabilities to train their peers on everyday living skills

·         Curriculum on de-institutionalisation for family members, adult educators and community workers 

·         Spreading and Sharing the Tools, training and learning with disability and mainstream education providers

Full project updates are available through the website.
