The development of policies and the delivery of services to promote the social inclusion of people with a chronic physical or mental illness or disability are crucial steps in achieving a more inclusive society. This report examines how to drive this process forward. It reviews the nature and scale of the problems facing different groups and identifies policy initiatives in employment, education, housing, transport and other areas which facilitate social and economic integration. Published to coincide with the European Year of People with Disabilities, the report aims to fuel the debate and increase policy focus on people with a chronic illness or disability, particularly those of working age. A short summary (EF0363) of this report has been prepared by the Foundation’s research managers and an information sheet (EF0332) is also available.
