HOW WE CAN HELP DISABLED PEOPLE
Today we’ll speak about great problem of our society, about
persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and
Now let’s look at the screen.
Getting a job or education, travelling between home and work, going for a
drink or to the cinema with friends are activities most of us take for granted.
But for too many disabled people these ordinary aspects of life remain
difficult to achieve.
Disabled people remain more likely to live in poverty, to have fewer
educational qualifications, to be out of work and experience prejudice and
abuse. They still routinely find themselves experiencing poorer services.
Disability should be distinguished from impairment and ill health.
A clear distinction needs to be made between disability, impairment and illhealth.
Impairments are long-term characteristics of an individual that affect
their functioning and/or appearance. Ill health is the short term or long-term
consequence of disease or sickness. Many people who have an impairment or
ill health would not consider themselves to be disabled.
Disabled people face a wide range of barriers
The types of barriers faced by disabled people include:
• attitudinal, for example among disabled people themselves and among
employers, health professionals and service providers;
• policy, resulting from policy design and delivery which do not take disabled
people into account;
• physical, for example through the design of the built environment, transport
• those linked to empowerment, as a result of which disabled people are not
listened to, consulted or involved.
The population of disabled people is large…
It is estimated that there are about 13 million disabled people in Russia.
Many of these people would not define themselves as disabled. The majority
of these people experience low level impairments – wheelchair users, blind
people and Deaf people make up an important minority.
The population of disabled people is highly diverse. It includes people from all
age groups and across the income and education spectrum.
Older people are more likely to be disabled than younger people, but over the
past thirty years the incidence of disability has risen fastest amongst children
– though it is not clear to what extent this simply reflects increased reporting.
Among adults there are increasing numbers of people reporting mental illness
and behavioural disorders, while the number of people reporting physical
impairments is decreasing.
Disabled people experience disadvantage in many aspects of daily life
Compared with non-disabledpeople, disabled people are:
• more likely to live in poverty –the income of disabled people is, on average,
less than half of that earned by non disabled people;
• less likely to have educational qualifications – disabled people are more
likely to have no educational qualifications;
• more likely to be economically inactive – only one in two disabled people
of working age are currently in employment, compared with four out of five
• more likely to experience problems with hate crime or harassment – a
quarter of all disabled people say that they have experienced hate crime or
harassment, and this number rises to 47% of people with mental health
• more likely to experience problems with housing – nine out of ten families
with disabled children have problems with their housing;
• more likely to experience problems with transport – the issue given most
often by disabled people as their biggest challenge.
The extent of the disadvantage is especially acute for some specific
groups of disabled people
Disabled people often experience multiple forms of labour market
• More than 40% of disabled people are low-skilled
• Around 25% of disabled people of working age are over-50yrs
• Around 10% are from ethnic minority ethnic groups
For these groups there can be cumulative problems which add up to an even
bigger impact on their life chances and quality of life.
Let’s help them to change their lives!
Disabled people should have full opportunities and choices to improve their
quality of life, and will be respected and included as equal members of society.
Steps should be taken to improve the provision of advice, housing and
transport options for disabled people
Technology offers many different ways to help people with disabilities
lead more normal lives. Devices that help them perform an activity are
called assistive technology. Assistive technology can help people reach
their personal and professional goals.
It is needed to improve the labour market status of disabled people.
Steps should be taken to improve the employability of disabled people.
The government should support disabled young people and their
families through the transition to adulthood.
Giving children with disabilities a brighter tomorrow!
Many people assume that a child or young person with a disability would
automatically receive the equipment they need. Sadly, this is not the case.
Many families are unable to get the help they need from local health
authorities for major items related to their child’s disabilities such as
specialized mobility equipment. This means that because of budget
constraints or delays, many families have no alternative but to purchase the
items themselves, if they can afford it.
We can help such children to get the equipment and aids they need. There are
a lot of organizations ready to provide such help. You may join them and you
may also make a donation through different SMS- or NET services like
Here is the list of some of these organizations.
«Союз благотворительных организаций России»
Русфонд (адресная помощь тжелобольным детям)
«Российский фонд милосердия и здоровья»(программа
«Милосердие – детям» - онкология,
ВПС, опрно-двигательный аппарат, ДЦП и т.д.)
Доброе сердце (Фонд помощи больным детям)
In the conclusion I’d like to quote Margaret Mead, who was an American
cultural anthropologist. Once she said:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change
the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has!” Margaret Mead
