People with disabilities worldwide experience exclusion, discrimination and, in many contexts, struggle to realise their human rights. Communication is a fundamental human right, yet people with communication
difficulties and other hidden disabilities are under-recognised, misunderstood and chronically under-served, particularly
in resource-limited settings. Hidden disabilities can lead to an
increased risk of social exclusion and isolation, subjection to stigma and an
increase in vulnerability to abuse, particularly in children. Often, it has a
significant impact on a person's ability to be economically independent and
included in family and community life.
What we do
Communicability Global provides expert advice on service development and provision for people with disabilities, particularly hidden difficulties such as communication and learning disabilities, and on social inclusion in under-resourced settings world-wide. We aim to raise the profile of communication disability as an important issue to address in development programming in under-served countries - particularly in health, educational and social service development.
Why we do it
'All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights' (Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948). We think this says it all and it is the driving force behind our human rights approach to disability advocacy.
