Disability Evidence

Now that there is a greater improvement to the accessibility of events and leisure facilities, more disabled people are getting out there.

There is a fundamental shift towards greater inclusion and a more diverse society and this can happen with accepting that to some disabled people they have a higher cost of living.

People and businesses have an understanding that on some occasions disabled people may need assistance and should not be financially penalised for this extra help and support.

Discretional discounts and free entrance for cares/ support workers is gaining ground in society, however; it has to be managed.  No one want to be the ‘disability police’ and It is a potentially sensitive subject which should be handled delicately whilst allowing disabled people to retain as much privacy and dignity as possible.


There are a number of recognised documents that can be asked for from disabled people which most (but not necessarily all) will have readily available;


Policies

The best way to approaching this subject is with your policies, by making sure that they are worded correctly and the publicising of your requirement is available as wide as possible.

The term and conditions of the policy need to be clear which is an acceptable form of id/ evidence and the reasoning behind why this form of evidence is required.


For example, a Blue Badge would entitle a disabled customer to use accessible parking spaces but not be adequate for a free Personal Assistant ticket.

DirectMii phone app is a free app that gives way-finding in and around building (those that have submitted plans.) It also has a profile section that is used to get the right route plan according to your capabilities, within this section is the opportunity to upload pictorial evidence of your disability.



The Social Model of disability Ethos:


The social model of disability explains the disadvantage experienced by disabled people in terms of  the way society is organised, rather than by a person’s impairment *.


 It is barriers that are erected by society that prevent disabled people participating fully in society.

The social model looks at ways of removing the barriers that restrict life choices for disabled people.


Disabled people developed the social model of disability as an alternative to the medical model which does not reflect personal experience of disability,

challenge inequality or help to develop more inclusive ways of living.


When barriers are removed, disabled people can be independent and equal in society, with choice and control over their lives.

This differs from the medical model which looks at the disadvantage disabled people face in terms their impairments or medical conditions.


*An impairment is defined as the limitation of a person’s physical, mental or sensory function on a long-term basis
