What is the social model of disability?

We use the terms “disabled person” or “disabled child” in recognition of the social model of disability’s primary tenet that an individual is disabled by societal barriers, such as inaccessible buildings, non-supportive legislation or discriminatory attitudes.

This belief informs our selection of Partners and projects; we aim to have an impact upon all facets of disability within Africa by working with and through local organisations and to have an additional independent impact on breaking down institutional and attitudinal barriers at regional and international levels.
