During this Public Affairs conference, the European Platform for Rehabilitation facilitated discussion among key European stakeholders, about the impact of empowerment for both people with disabilities and services providers, and to discuss how to measure and benchmark it at European level.

 

The event culminated in the European Quality in Social Services EQUASS awarding ceremony during which quality was addressed as fundamental condition to ensure empowerment.


Musical accompaniment to the theme of empowerment was offered by ‘All the Way Music’, a world-renowned Dutch agency for highly talented musicians with disabilities.

 

Below you can find additional information about the musicians, the speakers contributions and a gallery of the pictures taken during the event.
