In October 2022, ENVITER became a Candidate Observer Member of the EASPD, the European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities. This status means that ENVITER is an eligible organisation and has now a temporary membership (for maximum 1 year) to assess the interest of becoming a full member.
EASPD is an Association whose vision is that support services play a key role in enabling people to enjoy their human rights on an equal basis, beyond disability or any other factor. It is precisely this belief that guides their work in Brussels, Strasbourg and throughout Europe, working to reach the following objectives:
- The full implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
- The provision of high-quality, and user-centred services running in an accountable, efficient and effective way
- Fair working conditions and lifelong learning opportunities for staff employed in services.
Our full membership of the Association will be a subject for our General Meeting in Ascoli Piceno, next May. Meanwhile, if you wish to receive the EASPD newsletter and help us to decide whether or not we should become full members, you can use this web address: https://easpd.us11.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=47548462519f84ab547c39ce9&id=2c77ed4839
