The European Parliament Disability Intergroup

The Disability Intergroup is an informal grouping of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) from all nationalities and most political groups who are interested in promoting disability policy in their work at the European Parliament as well as in the national contexts. The Disability Intergroup is one of the oldest Intergroups of the European Parliament; it was established in 1980.
