We are committed to engaging with and listening to the needs of disabled people.

We are also committed to addressing the historical imbalance which has resulted in many disabled people being socially excluded and undervalued.

Our Framework for Action on Independent Living is rooted in the Social Model of Disability, which recognises that people with impairments are disabled by the barriers created by society, and that our guiding principles should be;

  • to remove these barriers and create an enabling society; and
  • to promote the rights and full inclusion of disabled people.
