A historical partnership
The NHCPD was the first historical "partner" of the Belgian Disability Forum (BDF)
Every two months, the Bureaus of the BDF and the NHCPD meet in a "Common Bureau" to exchange information on their respective actions and to develop their actions in a coherent way.
Regularly, the NHCPD and the BDF take common positions in favour of a better inclusion of all persons with disabilities in all the domains that fall under the competence of the federal government.
