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
