Disability and Family Carer Policy – Challenges and Responses

Having a working definition of what ‘disability’ is, is crucial to any research- along with policy development and service provision- being conducted in the field. There are many such definitions of disability (Iezzoni & Freedman, 2008), many of which lay in direct contradiction to each other. These originate from the many different theoretical viewpoints which have been, and are still being used, to articulate what ‘disability’ is. These “competing” models- though such competition is not explicitly stated in many cases- contribute to the confusion which often accompanies policy work and service provision in the disability specific sector and those sectors closely connected- such as Family Caring.
