What should the European Union do to protect people with disabilities?

The European Union should:

  • listen to people with disabilities and their organisations.
    Nothing should be decided about us without us!
  • make sure that people with disabilities are treated fairly
    and that they have same chances in life like everyone else.
  • work to make all things and services in Europe accessible
    so that people with disabilities can use them like everyone else.
    For that, the European Union should make a strong law
    saying that all things in life should be accessible.
  • make sure that all people with disabilities enjoy their rights
    and have access to health care, jobs, schools and other things.
  • make sure that people with disabilities have social security benefits
    wherever in Europe they decide to live.
  • make sure that transport like planes, boats, trains and buses
    are accessible so that people with disabilities
    can travel anywhere they want without problems.
  • make sure that the European money is spent on things
    that are accessible for people with disabilities too.
