How EPSA works

 

The European Platform of Self-Advocates (for short, EPSA)
is made up of groups of self-advocates
from different countries in Europe.

 

Persons with intellectual disabilities
are citizens like everybody else.

 

This means they have the same rights
as everyone else.

 

EPSA has spoken for self-advocacy organisations
in Europe since 2000.

 

The European Platform of Self-Advocates
meets at least once every year.

 

Every 2 years, there is a General Meeting
where all members meet to decide on important issues.

 

For example, to agree on a work plan
or elect members of the Steering Group.

 

EPSA Steering Group has 4 members
from different countries.

 

The members of this group meet several times a year.

 

They work with help of a Self-Advocacy Officer
to implement the work-plan
