Launch of the TRIADE 2.0 Erasmus+ programme
25th and 26th February 2019,
Kick-Off meeting in Kortrijk, Belgium

IVASS (Instituo Valenciano de Atencion Social Sanitaria) is the general coordinator of TRIADE 2.0 project; the kick-off meetinq was hosted by Familiehulp and GVO Sint Vincentius on 25th and 26th February 2019 in Kortrijk, Belgium.

TRIADE 2.0 project aims at tackling the problem of social inclusion of ageing adults with intellectual disabilities (AAWID), a new target group I the EU. Since the percentage of people with a disability increases with age, one of the priorities of the EU is to ensure equal access to education for people with disabilities enabling them to participate fully and actively in society and improving their quality of life.

However, as national health and social service provision is often inadequate to cope with the needs of these people, the projects commits to provide them with more information on the concept of healthy ageing and quality of life as well as with the acquisition of transversal competences.
