Person with disabilities
Disabilities can be congenital or the result of an accident (trauma), illness or age. These disabilities (physical, intellectual or mental) can have major consequences for the lives of disabled people and their environment. The City of Brussels has aid and services for them.
One of these services for disabled is the Equal Opportunities Unit. This unit madean Accessibility Guide on municipal buildings. This unit also made a list of restaurants that accept assistance dogs or that have a menu in Braille.
An action plan that aims to recruit people with disabilities aims to improve employment.
In Brussels there are parking spaces that are specifically reserved for people with disabilities.
At the website Handiweb disabled persons can consult their file at the federal Social security service.
On the territory of the City of Brussels, parking spaces are reserved for disabled persons. An interactive map now shows all these parking spaces. It will thus be easier to find these spaces that are painted in blue.
