The welfare for Persons with Disabilities (PwD), as expressed through the design and provision of services for PwD, represents a basic axis of national provisions & implementations, advocating over the human rights of PwD.

All these legal provisions are implemented through a series of policies relevant to the persons with disabilities, in which, participatory planning with the involvement of the service provider and the beneficiary, is of utmost importance. Firstly, for the anticipation of developing needs of PwD and secondly for the optimal and effective servicing of these needs.

The NET, as a basic social stakeholder, supports an effective policymaking for PwD, by attending to their real needs, through the provision of services that have the highest relevance to their everyday life.

The service providers to PwD – members of The NET, do have the necessary proximity to the field as well as the necessary scientific infrastructure, so that they recognize timely the emerging needs of the PwD they service and cover them with a plethora of well-documented and applied interventions, contributing this way with their work, to the optimal policymaking for PwD, in the context of an anthropocentric, national welfare design.
