AccessibleEU is one of the flagship initiatives proposed by the European Commission Strategy for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2021-2030. It is a resource Centre on accessibility working on areas such as built environment, transport, information and communication technologies to ensure the participation of persons with disabilities in all areas of life on equal basis with others.

Join our Community of Practice!
AccessibleEU’s goals include connecting stakeholders responsible for implementing accessibility rules in across Europe. To do that, the Centre has created a community of practice comprising accessibility experts from different EU countries as well as other people with interest in accessibility.

The consultations have been carried out as part of the project for the draft of the Act on Equal Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities.
The law provides for financial support from the State, and stakeholders and citizens can submit requests via a digital platform.
There is a whole programme of standards on accessibility that is still in its initial stages of development. This means that now is the right time if you want to contribute effectively to its drafting.
