The City of Brussels also has an Advisory Council for Persons with Disabilities. Each year grants are awarded to projects of associations.

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.
