PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES-GROUP EXPOSED TO THE RISK OF SOCIAL EXCLUSION: BRIEF ANALYSIS OF THE FACTORS THAT HINDERSTHEIR CONDITION IN THE SOCIETY
Journal of Community Positive Practices, 2019, issue 2, 25-42
This article focuses on a brief presentation / analysis of some factors that make it difficult to socially integrate people with disabilities. The social inclusion of people with disabilities refers to a process that seeks to provide the necessary support into realization of the potential for any person, regardless of the experience or circumstances in which they live their lives. Social exclusion of people with disabilities could cause long-term damage to living conditions, social and economic participation, sentimental life or health status for this category of people. The number of people with disabilities in Romania is steadily increasing, in order to support the active participation of people with disabilities in socio-economic, cultural and political life, opportunities for access to education, employment and decent living conditions must also be ensured. A continuous collection of statistical data specific about people with disabilities could provide: the number of people with disabilities in a particular place, the barriers they face and what policies/programs are needed to remove these barriers. In addition, disaggregating data by the type of disability is an important step in the inclusion of people with disabilities who face higher rates of death and exclusion from society.
