In March, the Global Coalition on Deinstitutionalisation launched a series of webinars to explore the Guidelines on Deinstitutionalisation, including in Emergencies. The webinar series is called “From Words to Practice”. Each webinar is hosted by a member of the GCDI.

The Coalition is inviting Inclusion International Members to join the third webinar in the series on 9 May 2024 from 15:00 – 16:30 Central European Time / 09:00 – 10:30 EST.

This webinar will cover the chapter 6 of the guidelines on “Inclusive community support services, systems and networks”.

We will hear examples of existing community support services and networks from different regions and different contexts. We will hear about peer support, family based support, support led by local organisations and members of the community.

Examples will come from Africa, MENA, Latin America, Asia and North America.

After the presentations, a discussion will be open so all participants can share their own experiences and ask questions.

Spanish interpretation will be provided.
