NCPD is constantly engaged in diverse forms of advocacy, including

 

  1. Presenting at local and international technical meetings

  3. Facilitating disability awareness sensitisations in the community

OPEN YOUR MIND: DISCOVER THE ABILITY IN DISABILITY

Since 2013, NCPD has also partnered with the Caribbean Kids and Families Therapy Organisation (CKFTO) and with Repsol to facilitate the Social Integration of Persons with Disabilities Campaign under the theme 'Open Your Mind: Discover the Ability in Disability.' The goal is to promote the equalisation of opportunities and quality of life for persons with disabilities such that their access to opportunities and social goods is on par with persons without disabilities. This is critical for the satisfaction of their human rights and freedoms as articulated in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
