On Thursday 16th May, in the framework of the Sabir festival, has been held a round table for presenting the project AMiD.
The Round Table has been an opportunity to present the latest experiences and the latest tools created for the integrated management of the asylum seekers and refugees in Italy and in Europe. In particular, as part of the European AMID project (Access to the services of migrants with disabilities), Arci Nazionale, SOLIDAR and DPI have took this occasion to promote the NAT (Needs Assessment Tool) for the detection of the specific needs of people with disabilities, as well as other results of the project. The round table has been also the occasion to project for the first time the video made by the documentarist Claudio Casale in collaboration with Arci, that will accompany the social media campaign of AMiD project.
Save the date: next 5thJune in Larnaca, Cyprus is going to take place the training event “Connecting the dots: Multi-level, Multi-actor Migration event”.

AMiD - Access to services for Migrants with Disabilities – is a two-years European funded project that aims to support an efficient management of the reception and integration of migrants with disabilities in the EU. AMiD has developed a Needs Assessment Tool, as mentioned above, to empower NGOs and Local Authorities to assess and support with adequate responses migrants with disabilities in Europe. The project has also developed training material to improve knowledge and responses of multidisciplinary professionals: local organizations working with migrants and refugees services, Disabled People’s organizations and Service providers for people with disabilities. AMiD also has established a Community-Advisory Board, as a permanent task-force to support the modelling and valorization of project results and to coordinate future common actions. SOLIDAR’s main task in the project is to disseminate the outcomes of the project and communicate its key results.
