JDC a day centre without walls

Jaunuolių Dienos Centras (JDC) is a day centre without walls based in the Lithuanian city of Panevėžys.

They are working with other European organisations as part of the Day Centres Without Walls project to explore how people with intellectual disabilities can support each other to be full and active citizens - breaking down prejudices and barriers to a life of contribution.

This film shows some of their innovative work, which includes Solidarity Coffee and the role that people with intellectual disabilities are taking as teachers of professional social workers.
