Online platform on community-based services from Youth with disabilities forum selected as one of 39 Zero Project 2015 Innovative Practices

In February 2015, Online platform on community-based services was recognized as one of 39 “Innovative Practices 2015” at the 2015 Zero Project Conference, an international summit on independent living and political participation, held at the United Nations offices in Vienna.

The platform was established under project “Community based services for persons with disabilities” (November 2012-June 2014), funded by European Union under civil Society Facility programe.

About the project “Community based services for persons with disabilities”:
Through an online database the project brings together – and shares information among – existing and new community-based service providers for people with disabilities in three areas: education, employment, and social protection. Networking among individuals and organizations on the local level helps to improve the quality of their services and to better assist the target group.

The project initiated cooperation among local stakeholders, which will enable continuous ongoing consultation to improve the lives of persons with disabilities at the local level. The programs developed for capacity-building will be implemented in other projects, in other cities and local communities, since the need for such training programs was seen during the project implementation.

FACTS & FIGURES
59 questionnaires were completed in 4 local governments to collect information on service provider’s capacities, accessibility, human resources, type of service provider (civil, public, private), sources of finance, frequency and quality of services, and type and number of beneficiaries.
According to research results, 21 new and 38 existing service providers were identified. More than 40 service providers entered their profiles on the project’s online database.
The project’s web portal is visited by up to 1,000 persons per month.
To date, 109 final users – young persons with disabilities and their families – have benefitted from the service’s implementation.

The Zero Project
The Zero Project focuses on the rights of persons with disabilities globally. It provides a platform where the most innovative and effective solutions to problems that persons with disabilities face are shared. The Zero Project was initiated by the Essl Foundation in 2010, and has run in partnership with the World Future Council since 2011 and with the European Foundation Centre since 2013. The mission of the Zero Project is to work for a world without barriers, according to the principles and Articles of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD).
