National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities


Introduction
For the last 80 years the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD) has played an integral role in shaping
South Africa into a country where persons with disabilities have access to equal opportunities and right. The NCPD runs
awareness programmes, influences government policies, promotes physical access, and facilitates economic participation.
Collectively, these actions enable, support and enhance the quality of life for persons with disabilities.

Our Vision

intensifies vulnerability
• Within a rights-based, inclusive and accessible society, persons with disabilities should have equal access to their
economic rights and social opportunities
