People with disabilities
Looking for support for disabled persons
People with disabilities, whether physical or mental, have many questions. Where can I find allowances? Housing assistance? What facilities are provided for public transport? Which education to follow? In Belgium, the policy for the disabled is the responsibility of several authorities: federal, regional and community.
Day centres welcome adults and children with mental, physical or sensory disabilities. They provide medical, psychological, paramedical, social and educational care through adapted activities.
