MESSAGE OF CONDOLENCES
Peter, an extraordinary and inspiring person that made the world a better place to live

This month we received very sad news. Peter Lambreghts, Senior Policy Officer at the European Network on Independent Living and friend of EASPD has passed away.
Peter was an extraordinary and inspiring person who dedicated his lifetime to promote the rights of persons with disabilities. He often challenged us and was the driving force behind many initiatives and projects driving the full inclusion for persons with disabilities. He made the world a better place to live in for many persons.
The European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities wishes to express our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Peter.
Thank you, Peter, for having worked in cooperation with us for many years and for always pushing for more inclusive support services. We will never forget you
