The partnership was initiated by CCE in collaboration with researchers from VUmc Department of Medical Humanities in Amsterdam and the University of Humanistic Studies in Utrecht.
Care providers for people with intellectual disabilities and various experts and organisations were involved in the creation of the project and are now helping to implement it.
The project has an advisory group of experts in the provision of care for this target group, and in the fields of qualitative participatory research, change, and law.
Various educational institutions contribute to this project through collaboration with students. These are the nursing and social work programmes of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS), HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht, HAN University of Applied Sciences, Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences and the Education Programme for doctors specializing in people with intellectual disabilities of Erasmus University Rotterdam. In addition, students in higher education are involved through the six partaking care providers. Within the framework of work placements and guest lectures, they collaborate with various study programmes in their region.
The target clients and their relatives are involved via care providers, KansPlus, and personal networks of project members. The aim is to bring together a multitude of knowledge and expertise from different domains in our partnership.
