On 30 June 2020, the European Network on Independent Living launched its first Independent Living Survey, with the aim of collecting general information about access to Independent Living of disabled people across Europe, and detailed information about Personal Assistance schemes or systems.
A total of 143 responses were received, 116 in English, 7 in French and 20 in German. The majority came from disabled people (including PA users) and organisations of persons with disabilities. In the end, responses from 43 countries were included in the analysis. A detailed description of the PA scheme/policy – i.e. the country sheets – is available for 30 countries. A response from the Russian Federation could not be verified, therefore it was not included in the analysis. No responses have been received for Andorra, Liechtenstein, Monaco and Switzerland.
The responses were analysed in a Summary report, and more detailed information can be found in the Country sheets below. Please note that Country sheets are being added as they are confirmed, with a plan to finalise them until the end of January 2021.
