About SLIÍ - Independent Living Austria

SLIÖ (Independent Living Austria) is the national interest group of Austria's Independent Living organisations. It is a network of organisations, projects and individuals from all parts of Austria.

Our goal is to achieve the true equality of people with disabilites and the full application of their citizen and human rights. We are active in Austria and on an international level.

Our principles match up with those of the international Independent Living Movement:

  • Independence and self-advocacy
  • Equality
  • Non-discrimination
  • Accessibility

Our Motto is: "Nothing about us without us!"
and is reflected in our organisational structures: all initiatives, projects and working groups consist of and are led by people with disabilities.

Our work

SLIÍ works to achieve its goals mainly by means of consciousness-raising press releases, and statements on the progress in the implementation of national and international laws in Austria.
