European Network on Independent Living (ENIL)

There’s more to Europe than Brexit! The European Network on Independent Living (ENIL) is a European wide network for disabled people, independent living organisations and their non-disabled allies, on the issues of independent living.

ENIL works directly with disabled individuals, organisations (mainly Centres of Independent Living), politicians, social agents, media, the business world and any individual or organisation interested in learning about independent living, history, values, principles and practical application.

ENIL also publish news items on their website. Recent examples include articles on the fight for independent living in Italy and Sweden and UNIL’s Freedom Drive campaign, which lobbies and promotes the right to Independent Living, the right to Personal Assistance and the ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities.

ENIL are also promoting a survey into engagement with technology to assess whether there is a digital divide between young females with and without disabilities, which they encourage female readers aged 15-29 to fill in.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
