The Social Model of Disability

There are many interpretations / statements of the Social model of disability. CiLK subscribes to the British Council of Disabled People’s interpretation:

“In the broadest sense, the social model of disability is about nothing more complicated than a clear focus on the economic, environmental and cultural barriers encountered by people who are viewed by others as having some form of impairment – whether physical, sensory or intellectual.”
