Information relayed by Danske Handicaporganisasioner (DH) / Disabled People’s Organisation Denmark (DPOD)
DPOD is part of the group that facilitates the Disability Area Partnership adopted by the Danish Parliament parties on April 25. The political agreement states that the new partnerships must contribute to creating security and counteracting the loneliness and numbers of dissatisfaction among vulnerable and vulnerable groups throughout the reopening. The partnership must play an important role in developing new solutions and uncovering any new challenges as the society gradually reopens. The partnership must work until the reopening of the community is complete.
