The overall aims of the project are:
  1. To exchange experience and good examples on peer support from the four countries; Estonia, Latvia, Sweden and Norway.
  2. To give opportunity to a beginning of cooperation over borders for young disabled people from Scandinavia and the Baltic’s.
  3. To show different ways of working for disabled people for the right of self-determination and equality through the opportunity of participating in the ULOBA Pride Parade, the organised IL days in Oslo as well as participating in study visits to ULOBA and ENILs board meeting

The project is being organised and delivered by an ENIL team and members from STIL. We are looking for 3 participants from Sweden, 2 Participants from Estonia and 1 participant from Latvia to take part in this project. Travel costs and accommodation will be covered.

Since the focus of the project will be put on the concept of peer support and equality, people with disabilities who use Personal assistant would be encouraged to apply.
