Presentation of the project

The Côte-à-Côte association has built a passive home in the heart of Louvain-la-Neuve for young adults with motor disabilities such as cerebral palsy (CP). It thus offers these young people the opportunity to live their lives independently.

Côte-à-Côte Go asbl has set itself the mission of creating an environment that enables CPs to realize their life project through autonomy and solidarity in order to become actors in society. This project also allows the inhabitants and friends of Côte-à-Côte Go asbl, with or without disabilities, to enrich themselves by sharing a life experience.
