This publication, focused on what foundations should be doing in order to implement affirmative policies that actively foster the rights of persons with disabilities, underlines the level of EFC (European Foundation Centre) commitment to the necessary, even overdue, efforts towards the mainstreaming of disabilities within foundations' work. There is a spectrum of responses that foundations can take, from being more aware and sensitive to the needs of persons with disabilities and how these might be factored into work supported by a foundation, to having an explicit focus on disability. By highlighting examples and best practice from different foundations in Europe, this book also aims to make the point that partnering and peer learning are excellent ways to spark new ideas.
