Institutionalization remains one of the predominant forms of care for children and adults with disabilities. This is a priority gap to address as institutionalization deprives people of many rights. The project will develop mechanisms and build professional capacities to prevent institutionalization. It will analyze legislation on professional rehabilitation to help improve chances for a decent life, employment and independent living. Needs of adults with disabilities in institutions or at risk of institutionalization will be assessed, CRPD compliant budgeting introduced to prevent family separation, a minimum package of family and community-based services developed and services to support children and adults at risk or residing in institutions piloted. The Protector for Human Rights and Freedoms and OPDs will be supported to develop inclusive, independent monitoring.
