We are working for a good life!

Service Foundation for People with an Intellectual Disability (KVPS)

It is a pleasure to work with KVPS as project partner. KVPS freely shares its great expertise with us and we can always rely on KVPS due to its excellent project management skills and due to our common target groups and the idea of transnational collaboration.

Promoting Equal Opportunities – Developing Together

What do we do?

  • We work to promote a good life for people with intellectual disabilities and their families by lobbying decision-makers and legislators. We co-operate in advocacy work with NGO’s and other parties involved in the field.
  • We promote a person-centred approach to the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. We advocate their full citizenship rights. We carry out development projects and organise various kinds of training.
  • We offer a wide variety of respite care services to cater for the different needs and situations of families and people with special support needs. We support parents in coping with their situation and make it possible for carers to have short breaks and days off.
  • We acquire apartments for young people and adults with intellectual disabilities who wish to live on their own. We develop group housing for people with special support needs.
