The demands on non-residential and residential community services are high. Based on a changed understanding of disability, there is a stronger focus on participation and support for independent living in one's own home and in the social space. In addition, the Federal Participation Act requires a review of the effectiveness of services provided. With limited financial and human resources, service providers are faced with the problem that there are no practical instruments for mapping the quality of participation and its effects.

Such instruments have now been scientifically developed at ITA and are now available to all housing providers as the "Compass Housing Quality" in order to be able to assess and improve their participation and quality of life in a client-oriented way. Until August, detailed information on the new ITA offer will be passed on to interested institutions in online information events, and from September the instruments can be booked.
