The National Organization LEV, Denmark

The National Organisation LEV is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) for people with learning disabilities, their families and others sharing an interest. LEV was founded in 1952. The National Organisation LEV does not provide direct services to people. Its focus is aimed at decision makers at the local, regional, national and international level.

The National Organisation LEV wants to ensure that people with learning disabilities will always have the opportunity to live as ordinary a life as possible. In the early days this meant abolishing institutions, later this meant access to education or raising a family – only development and change in society can tell how far we will go. Being a person with a learning disability does not mean you should be treated better than others, just the same with the same opportunities. Today, the National Organisation LEV has some 16,000 members.
