“To secure independent, integrated living opportunities for people with disabilities in order to promote their full participation into mainstream society.”
Disability has social causes which should not be confused with personal impairment or illness.
Service needs are inter-related and the success of provision for one need, depends on understanding all needs as a whole.
The basic services and facilities defined by disabled people are for:
- Comprehensive information
- Peer support
- Personal support
- Technical aids
- Appropriate Housing
- Access to goods and services
Full provision of the above basic needs then enables equality of opportunity for disabled individuals to take part in all normal social activities.
