The Common European Guidelines on the Transition from Institutional to Community-based Care published in 2012 provided practical advice about how to make a sustained transition from institutional care to family-based and community-based alternatives for individuals currently living in institutions and those living in the community, often without adequate support. These guidelines are aimed primarily at Policy and decision makers in the European Union and the neighboring countries with responsibility for the provision of care and support services for children, people with disabilities and their families, people with mental health problems and older people.
The Common European Guidelines on the Transition from Institutional to Community-base Car are available in English and in a number of other languages at www.deinsitutionalisationguide.eu.
