People with a disability

Improving the quality of life and inclusion of people with a disability and their families.

Housing, employment, accessibility and other aspects: there remains a great deal to do to give people with a disability their rightful place in society. The King Baudouin Foundation strives for greater equality and fights the negative representations associated with being disabled in society.

Our activities

  • we support grassroots initiatives that help those with a disability to participate fully in society, to improve their quality of life and that of those close to them
  • we raise awareness and inform people about issues related to disability (respite breaks for the family, employment, the siblings of children and young people with a disability etc.)
  • and we conduct advocacy among government bodies and citizens to attract their attention to the realities and needs of people with a disability and their families.

People with a disability is part of the programme Social justice & poverty
