History of Breakthrough UK
Breakthrough UK Ltd is a disabled people’s organisation which aims to promote the independence and integration of disabled people into society. We are also a successful social enterprise. Our organisation is controlled and managed in the majority by disabled people. We bring together disabled people, local businesses and other agencies to plan and deliver projects and services to promote independence.
The Social Model of Disability
Breakthrough UK Ltd uses the social model of disability in its policies and practice. The social model of disability has come about as disabled people and their own organisations have challenged the traditional view that they are disabled by their individual conditions of mind, body or senses (impairments).
