Association of Youth with Disabilities of Montenegro (AYDM) has started the implementation of the project “From legal guarantees to equality in practice” in January 2016. This project aims to provide free legal aid for individuals with disabilities and members of their families. Until the end of March, AYDM provided free legal aid to 22 individuals (7 people with disabilities were provided with active help and information and 15 were provided with advice). The project started with collection of data on the right of access to justice of individuals with disabilities. In that sense the organization sent requests for free access to information to nine different state institutions. On February 29th AYDM met with the President of Supreme Court of Montenegro, Ombudsman of Montenegro and Deputy of Ombudsman of Montenegro. One of the main topics of the meeting was access to justice of people with disabilities. During the meeting, the President of the Supreme Court of Montenegro and representatives of Ombudsman of Montenegro emphasized their full support and willingness to collaborate on the project’s activities.
