Articles, interviews and reports about the situation of people who need practical daily help for their survival. For our purposes, “care” and “personal assistance” denote the two extremes of one conceptual continuum.
Where along this continuum between “care” and “personal assistance” do we live? What are the consequences of a particular country’s policies in terms of our possibilities for inclusion, participation and self-determination? We want to highlight good solutions but we also need to document the injustice, negligence and sometimes outright oppression that our group is still exposed to.
Our ambition is to have updated descriptions of the situation in many countries. Most of the texts are in English, some in a few other European languages (for Swedish texts see assistanskoll.se).
We invite you to add to this collection by amending, updating articles or writing new texts. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
