INSIDE

INSIDE project aims to promote social inclusion and empowerment of people with intellectual disabilities (PwID) by enhancing their access and participation to sport activities. A number of EU policies (e.g. European Accessibility Act; 2019) focuses on the actions needed to be taken for the promotion of equal opportunities to people with disabilities. World Health Organization recognizes PwID as an extremely vulnerable population often subjected to discrimination and neglect, calling for further actions. When referring to sport activities, the statistics indicate that PwID are not offered the same opportunities with the general population. In fact, they lack sport opportunities adapted to their level, needs and capabilities organized by specialized trainer. The partnership highly recognizes the need for offering organized adapted physical activities to PwID in order to promote equal opportunities, social inclusion and empowerment as well as a healthy lifestyle.
