The program covers introduction and implementation of the European disability card, in Slovenian named European card of benefits for invalids, that aims at embettering the accessibility of services for invalids and handicaped people in Slovenia and eight partner EU countries. The program is structured in two parts. Firstly we learn about the first phase of the project (2015-2017); its conception, realization and challenges that applicants and participles faced. Secondly we adress the ongoing stage of the project (2021-2023), where we discuss the methodology of assessing the accessibility of buildings and surroundings, renovation and actualization of the national service of providers and necessary improvements on the promotion of the project. In the concluding part of the program we critically assess the project with the help of the users; Slovenian invalids and handicaped people.
