Centre de la Gabrielle – MFPass and the University Paris-Créteil (UPEC) in France, the Service Foundation for People with Intellectual Disability in Finland (KVPS), the Institution for Community-based Social Services Foundation in Bulagria (ICSS) and Stewarts Care in Ireland started in September a new European project called ILLICO, standing for “Independent Living Skills: Learning and Investing in people with disabilities, Co-operating with families and service providers” and co-financed by the Erasmus + program of the European Commission.
ILLICO's main objective is to improve the support of adults with intellectual disabilities towards a more independent life, offering tools for people with disabilities, families and professionals in the medical-social field.
Over 3 years are planned the writing of two studies, innovative peer-emulation programs and networks, a youtube channel for the development of independent living skills with 6 video-clips, as well as a toolkit including trainings for professionals in contact with families about cooperation.
These different tools will be translated into several languages, distributed at a European level and online, via a website where the resources will be free to download at the project’s website: www.illicoproject.com
ILLICO is born from a previous project, entitled "Unlocking Freedom through Adult Education", which resources are available online at www.illicoproject.com.
