Training opportunities for people with disabilities at government agencies in Latvia

Latvia:
After the gathering, analysis and translation of "Baseline" data we organized a meeting (in May 2007) with representatives from 27 State institutions and agencies and presented our results in comparison to the other countries. As a result of this meeting most of the institutions and agencies were informed about the results of "Baseline" and agreed to better the situation in the institutions represented and they became part of the National Network and regularly received news from the project. In November 28th we had a fallow-up meeting with representatives from the same institutions about the accessibility of information and employment. Unfortunately there is no reference added to the inclusion of people with disabilities in their strategical plans or institutional policies, but the reflection was more professional and understanding in comparison to the meeting in May.

"Baseline" results have been published in the project homepage. They show the comparison between situation in Latvia and other EU countries and serve as a point "0" for tracking the future changes, as after the end of the project we will continue to monitor and systematically encourage the State institutions to pay attention and implement strategy of inclusive policy also in practice and training.
