COCEMFE is a non-profit NGO established in 1980. Its objective is to achieve the full inclusion and active participation of people with physical and organic disabilities in all areas of society, through the promotion, defence and demand of the exercise of their rights, as well as the coordination, representation and promotion of their Associative Movement, thus contributing to the construction of an inclusive and diverse society.

COCEMFE  heads explained to the Queen the situation of the group they represent in the face of the pandemic. During the nationwide lockdown, most of their entities closed their doors, adapting the remote work culture.  Residential centres have remained open, as well as most home help and personal assistance services, but day centre activities and other specialized social services such as early care, physical therapy, rehabilitation and functional recovery have been suspended.

The Foundation was born in 2014, out of the concern expressed by a large part of organized civil society regarding gender inequality that also occurs within the population having disabilities and in view of the need to deepen the knowledge and articulation of responses to these situations of discrimination.

The Foundation defends the effective equality of women and girls with disabilities from a human rights perspective. In today’s meeting, the CERMI informed Queen about the impact of COVID19 on the women with disabilities, the problems they are facing and how CERMI is helping them.
