Committees and expert groups

In order to have a full involvement of members and a balanced representation of all categories of disabilities, EDF set up different structures to support its work.

We achieve a balanced representation of disabilities and full involvement of our members through three types of working structures. 


Email expert groups

Our e-mail expert groups play the important role in shaping our position on specific issues, and provide a source of shared learning and support within our membership. In particular, e-mail expert groups will be requested to give inputs on on-going issues within our work programme, or unexpected issues that might need immediate input from the experts.

The email expert groups are focusing on the Following working areas.
