PEER SUPPORT

Persons with Disabilities experience daily barriers such as no accessible public transport, inaccessible terrain for people with physical disabilities due to the historical design of towns and lack a lack of employment opportunities.

Disability Awareness

What is awareness raising and sensitisation?

Awareness raising = become aware, gain knowledge, know of.

Sensitisation = gain insight/understanding, have direct contact (why, background, beyond the obvious disability).
