Disability Benefit more person centred

Disability Benefit more person centred

It is about time for Malta to embark into reforming the Disability Benefits. Rather than the funds go to NGOs and service providers, the individual with a disability is assessed and one determines the amount of assistance they require. NGOs will offer a paid service which is paid by the fund if approved rather than having to plea for donations and create new projects to get funds to sustain their current projects.

Points

We also need to have a look at the way the blue card system works - current system used by KNPD and transport malta definitely does not work for people who suffer from short term terminal illnesses (the process is very inconvenient for very sick people and it takes too long)

we need to invest more in people who suffer from invisible disabilities such as ME/CFS sufferers.
