The European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities calls for the European Union to take immediate action to ensure that EU funds reach social services on-the-ground to mitigate the crisis.


EASPD strongly urges the European Union to develop a coordinated response to counter the social impact of the COVID-19, with a dedicated focus on the care and support needs of persons with disabilities, older persons, children, homeless people and other persons with support needs and their families.
