Objective(s) The aim of this activity was to enable a wide range of actors to discuss with CoE experts coming from the Greek Ombudsman Institution, on different aspects of prioritisation of the national policy on prevention of exclusion of persons with disabilities. 
Output/Results This event was part of a series of activities dedicated to promotion of rights of persons with disabilities that will be taking place not only in the capital by also in other cities during the month of July 2011. The participants have discussed topics such as: partnership’s role in promoting human rights for persons with disabilities and their families; necessary actions for improvement of situations of persons with mental disabilities and their families; measures and recommendations on national and European level concerning combating the poverty of persons with mental disabilities and their families; role of NGOs in promoting and implementing the policies on prevention of social exclusion and others. 
Conclusions/Follow Up The participants appreciated the interesting assessment of the national framework concerning PwD, and agreed on the need for revision of the National Strategy of Social Inclusion. One of the main conclusions was that the civil society should be more involved to decision making policies and fight for PwD rights. It was also stressed that there is need for organizing on-site visits to auxiliary schools, institutions and hostels of other European countries to gain know how.
