Association des Paralysés de France

The project

Mindful of the importance of making everyday life easier for disabled people, and particularly those with reduced mobility, the Foundation is working with Association des Paralysés de France (APF).

Initial Foundation support for APF concerned the creation of an “accessibility path”, aimed at raising public awareness of the obstacles encountered by people with reduced mobility in their everyday lives. The resource is available to all APF structures seeking to organise an event and is loaned out to the organisation’s delegations across France.

The Foundation is now lending APF a helping hand in the organisation of special holidays in 2013 and 2014 with APF Evasion. The idea is for children with physical disabilities to stay in “ordinary” vacation centres with non-disabled children and teenagers.

APF helps holiday structures to provide access for children with disabilities by disseminating information, facilitating administrative procedures, assisting in recruitment and training key support personnel, who rather than accompanying the children facilitate their integration in the group. The all-in-one holidays are organised by partner associations including UPCA, Fédération des Œuvres Laïques, Leo Lagrange and La Ligue de l’enseignement. The Foundation’s support has helped to increase the number of children benefitting from all-in-one vacations in 2013-2014 from 300 to 400 a year. The long-term goal is for the partner entities hosting disabled children to become autonomous.
