About Us


EASPD stands for the European Association of Service Providers for Persons with Disabilities.
An Association is a group of people joined together by the same aim.
Service providers are the people who are paid to run services.


We want to make sure disabled people are included and have the right support they need.
Being included is important. It means everyone can take part, and everyone has a fair chance.




We believe services that support disabled people play an important part in making inclusion happen.


EASPD was started in 1996. We now represent over 11.000 service providers in Europe.
Represent means speaking up for others.


Our members are organisations who provide services to disabled people in Europe.



We make sure disabled people can get high quality services like everyone else.
To do this:

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) says that disabled people have the same rights as everyone else.
It says what governments should do to make this happen.

  • We make sure that services are run well.
  • We make sure that service staff are well trained and looked after.
