Opening up communities, closing down institutions: Harnessing the European Structural and Investment Funds

The report "Opening up communities, closing down institutions: Harnessing the European Structural and Investment Funds" concerns the role of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) with respect to the transition from institutional to community-based living for children and young people, including those with disabilities, adults with disabilities and older persons in European Union Member States.

This publication has been produced by Community Living for Europe Structural Funds Watch. It contains examples, both positive and negative, that demonstrate how the Member States have implemented the ESIF regulations, how they are currently using or are planning to use the ESIF to support the transition to community-based living, and provides concrete recommendations for the current and next funding period post 2020.
