Challenges for the voluntary sector

The voluntary sector is working to empower people with disabilities in various ways.  These include:
  • Advocacy and lobbying work to improve the government’s commitment to empowering disabled people, and ensuring that disabled people aren’t discriminated against.
  • Empowering people with disabilities, with a special focus on those within the most vulnerable groups of society. 
  • Raising public awareness of disability issues.
  • Developing outreach projects for disabled people. 
  • Providing educational opportunities to disabled people.
  • Forming associations for parents of children with disabilities.
