Research Centre for Life with a Mobility Disability

Organization profile

Organisation profile

LIMO is Denmark's national research centre for research into mobility disability from a child and youth perspective. The centre is co-financed by the Bevica Foundation and Roskilde University. The centre's overall goal is to improve the quality of life of children and youths with mobility disabilities in both the short and long term.

The child and youth research centre, Life with a Mobility Disability, aims to establish a better knowledge base, from the perspective of children and youths, for the development of more inclusive daily-life institutions for children and young people with mobility disabilities, focusing on making better use of their resources and expertise.

At the same time, the centre has an ambition to create a window for future opportunities and challenges for people with mobility disabilities through knowledge-based reflection and debate about future challenges and opportunities in relation to an independent and unassisted life for children and youths, as well as for adults, with mobility disabilities.

A qualitative and exploratory child and youth perspective will generate the knowledge necessary to create more inclusive everyday life institutions (school, day-care, leisure activities, etc.) and qualify special aid measures.

The centre's work will establish a basis for recognizing the special resources and competencies possessed by children, youths and adults with mobility disabilities. The centre will also explore, highlight and create opportunities for realizing these special resources, both in everyday life and in the labour market.
