MEP Marian Harkin, the European Foundation for the improvement of living and working conditions (Eurofound), the European Disability Forum (EDF), and the European Network on Independent Living (ENIL) will hold an event on facilitating independent living of people with disabilities.

The event will see the launch of 2 key pieces of research into independence and well-being for people with disabilities. The first will be a publication by EDF and ENIL on good practice around Europe for fostering independent living and autonomy, and preventing the institutionalisation of people with disabilities. The second publication will set out fresh research by Eurofound into the evolving levels of well-being of people with disabilities in the EU.
