This edition of Footsteps reminds us that disability is mostly caused by barriers in society, not by specific physical, intellectual or emotional impairments.

These barriers might be very obvious: for example, steps into a building and no ramp. But often it is people’s attitudes that are the problem, and many people with disabilities face misunderstanding and discrimination on a daily basis.

If these barriers are identified and broken down, our churches and communities will be more vibrant, diverse and inclusive. Everyone will have access to essential services such as water and sanitation and no one will be left behind in times of disaster. People with hidden disabilities, such as depression, will feel valued and understood.
