AMiD - Access to services for Migrants with Disabilities

AMiD project aims to support an efficient management of the reception and integration of asylum seekers and migrants with disabilities in the European Union (EU). The project is led by European Association of Service Providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD) and lasts for 24 months.

The project will result in the creation of a Specific Needs Assessment Tool to be circulated among all actors dealing with migrants assessment. Such a tool will empower Local Authorities, NGOs and EU agencies to assess and support with adequate responses migrants and refugees with disabilities, hopefully serving as a foundation for launching a common EU approach to this topic.

EDF’s role in the project is its participation in the Community-Advisory Board together with the four other project partners (EASPD, Assembly of European Regions, Association of European Boarder Regions, and SOLIDAR), 3 regional governors of Timis in Romania, Valencia in Spain and Värmland in Sweden, external experts from Migrant and Minority Disability Network Europe and European Federation of National Organisations Working with the Homeless (FEANTSA).
