European Disability Strategy 2010—2020 Easy-to-Read version
Around 80 million people in the European Union have a disability. Disabled people are often poorer than other people and sometimes are not fully involved in society and the economy. This strategy will try to improve the conditions of people with disabilities and guarantee their rights for the next 10 years. The European population is also getting older and more people will have disabilities because of that. The European Union is trying to make sure that people with disabilities can use their basic human rights to be included and participate in society.
