  • Makes Disability an Equal Opportunities issue
  • Is built on the Social Model of Disability - the
    focus is on organisations looking at how they
    function, rather than how Disabled People
    function.
  • Attention is put on removing barriers to
    participation for Disabled People.
  • Disabled People are seen as active members of
    society who expect and are expected to contribute
    their particular skills and gifts.
  • Recognises that societal barriers prevent
    inclusion not impairments.
