Our international projects

KVPS is a respected and experienced project partner. We carry out many international projects each year. Over the past few years we have been developing self-directed support, deinstitutionalisation processes, supported decision making, transition support and inclusion. Here you can find information on our current projects.

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.

The ACCESS to Leisure project (2022-2024) aims to develop and test out a complex training package focused on the theme of inclusive leisure time. The aim of the package is to enable people with learning disabilities to spend their free time engaging in activities they like, and to motivate others in their environment to do the same.

The ACCESS to Leisure project was co-financed by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme.


The COMPASS project (2022-2023) is a network project where the purpose is to promote Nordic cooperation and the spread of good practices in different countries. Our project partners are Jag Assist from Norway, Sweden and Finland and NPA miðstöðin from Iceland. The goal of the COMPASS project is to share good practices among the disability sector operators in the Nordic countries on how to make work in the disability sector a more visible employment option for employees with a multicultural background.

The project is financed through the Nordplus.


To Inclusive Education and BEYOND (2018-2021) is a Erasmus+ funded project, which aims to empower special schools and service providers supporting children with special needs, to facilitate the transition towards fully inclusive education systems.
