45 MEPs have demanded the Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative to secure funding for support and care services for people with disabilities.
The letter is addressed to European Commission President Von der Leyen and EU Council President Michel and calls attention to the alarming lack of funding for services that provide care and support for persons with disabilities. Furthermore, it underlines that most organisations have adapted and continue to provide services but face a lack of access to needed funding, due to non-flexible contracts with authorities and delayed funding calls.
