The European Disability Forum is an independent NGO that represents the interests of 80 million Europeans with disabilities.
EDF is a unique platform which brings together representative organisation of persons with disabilities from across Europe. EDF is run by persons with disabilities and their families.
EDF help to monitor the CRDP (the Convention of Rights for Disabled People) and produces the Alternative Report. The purpose of EDF’s Alternative Report is to inform the UN Committee about how the UN CRPD has been implemented by the European Union and its institutions, agencies and bodies.
It gives the view of 80 million Europeans with disabilities on their enjoyment of their political, civil, economic, social and cultural rights. The report is the result of a collective work with EDF’s members, civil society organisations and other stakeholders.
Building Bridges Training has produced the easy read version of the EDF’s report of the first 10 years of the Convention.
