EMSP is kindly inviting people living with multiple sclerosis (MS) across Europe to complete our newly launched Pan-European Patients Survey (PEP).
You can find the survey here.
This is the only such initiative that focuses primarily on the specific situation and needs of people with MS in terms of employment, care, treatment, support and living environment.
The first available version is in English, but other European languages will follow over the next weeks.
EMSP's first newsletter in 2015 focuses on the latest developments in our organisation's projects and advocacy work.
The main points from this issue of the Web Alert:
- Start of Believe and Achieve internships;
- Registration for EMSP's 2015 Spring Conference;
- EMSP at European Day for Persons with Disability.
EMSP organised an all-day workshop on employment for people with disabilities, on 29 July, in Brussels, as part of its new Paving the Path to Participation (PPP) project, already acknowledged through a grant awarded by the European Commission’s DG Justice Progress programme.
The event gathered around 30 stakeholders from MS societies, the broader NGO sector, the industry and a representative of DG Justice, Ms Hana Velecka.
EMSP was represented at the European Day of Persons with Disability - a European Disability Forum (EDF) event hosted by the European Commission on 2-3 December, in Brussels - by our Project Coordinator and MS advocate Emma Rogan (photo).
In a very personal speech she delivered on 3 December, Emma shared her own experience of living with multiple sclerosis while stressing the importance of access to employment:
"Paid work opens up opportunities and provides sense of purpose, security and dignity."
