In the past, many community-based rehabilitation (CBR) programmes focused on health issues and rehabilitation activities, often ignoring the social needs of people with disabilities. Even today, topics such as relationships, marriage and parenting may be seen as too sensitive or too difficult to address, while access to cultural, sporting and recreation activities, and to justice, is seen as unnecessary. This component highlights the importance of these issues in the lives of people with disabilities and therefore the need for CBR programmes to address them.
