About Norwegian Federation of Organizations of Disabled People (FFO)
The Norwegian Federation of Organizations of Disabled People (FFO) is an umbrella organization with more than 70 member organizations of people with disabilities and chronic diseases.
Our main goal is to work for better living conditions and the fulfillment of human rights for people with disabilities and chronic diseases.
Most of our work is politically based. We have regular meetings with the Government, Parliament and directorates about issues that are of relevance for people with disabilities and chronic diseases. These issues cover the whole life spectrum – from birth to death.
FFO are engaged in advocacy work on following areas:
FFO also runs a Legal Advice Center (Rettighetssenteret) with special competence within Welfare Law. (Information only in Norwegian).
FFO is organized centrally with local offices on both county and municipality levels.
Membership and cooperation
Since FFO is an umbrella organization, we can only cooperate with other umbrella organizations. Today we cooperate with such organizations on Nordic and European level, and in Nepal, China and southern Africa.
On Nordic and European level our co-operation is mainly focusing on political issues. In Nepal, China and southern Africa we cooperate with national umbrella organizations within the fields of organizational building, human right issues and good governance.
