What is AMiD?
AMiD (Access to services for Migrants with Disabilities) aims to support an efficient management of the reception and integration of asylum seekers and migrants with disabilities in the EU.
AMiD will outline a Needs Assessment tool to empower NGOs and Local Authorities to assess and support with adequate responses migrants and refugees with disabilities in Europe. The project will develop a targeted workshop to improve knowledge and responses of multidisciplinary professionals (NGOs staff): Local organizations working with migrants and refugees services, Disabled People organisations and Service providers for people with disabilities. AMiD will also create a Community-Advisory Board (CAB), a permanent task-force able to support the modelling and valorisation of project results and to coordinate future common actions.
