The third Community action programme to assist disabled people (HELIOS II, 1992-1996) now publishes a bimonthly newsletter "HELIOS Flash" to provide all interested parties with as much concise, accurate and factual information as possible on activities within the HELIOS programme and other Europe-wide initiatives concerning disabled people.

The first issue of the newsletter outlines the objectives of HELIOS II and introduces the three advisory bodies provided for by the Council Decision establishing the programme.

HELIOS II sets out to devise common approaches in a wide variety of fields such as prevention and early assistance, functional rehabilitation, integration into the educational system, training and vocational guidance, employment, new technologies, technical aids and databases, independent living, access to cultural, sport, leisure and tourism activities, family life, the elderly, and social, legal and economic protection.

The action programme pursues three interactive themes:
- Technical cooperation (particularly at local level);
- HANDYNET (the EC computerized information system on disability questions);
- Consultation (the establishment of structures).
