Other information: 
European Disability Forum (EDF) is an independent NGO that represents the interests of 80 million Europeans with disabilities. EDF is the only European platform run by persons with disabilities and their families. They are the voice of persons with disabilities in Europe. They work to build a stronger and more united disability movement, with special attention to those with significant and multiple disabilities, those who face multiple discrimination or any other form of marginalisation. They are a strong and extensive network. They build alliances with all those organisations that share their goals and help them to promote the rights of disabled people. With their partners, they exchange ideas and experience, enriching their work with their know-how and expertise.
