About us

The European Association of Persons with Intellectual Disabilities and their Families

“Inclusion Europe represents the voice of people with intellectual disabilities and their families throughout Europe”

Inclusion Europe is an association of people with intellectual disabilities and their families in Europe.
We started in 1988.
We fight for equal rights and full inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities and their families in all aspects of life.

As a European association we work in the many different areas which our members have identified as important to them:

  • We provide for the exchange of knowledge across Europe
    “Through Inclusion Europe I learn what my colleagues do in other countries.”
  • We support our members.
    “Inclusion Europe helps our organisation to become stronger.”
  • We influence European policies.
    “Inclusion Europe shapes European social policy according to our needs.”Our Constitution sets out who we are and how we work.
