Le Carrosse cares in Belgium and France for mentally deficient persons who can’t live by their own means in society and need to be supervised 24 hours a day. Although those persons are “institutionalized” and therefore segregated, Le Carrosse tries to integrate them back into society through their daily activities and even more, as some of them regain some autonomy, to aim for their full inclusion.
