The Municipality of Växjö aims to create a society whereby everyone is treated equally, and lives according to the same conditions. All people are to be accepted and respected for the person they are. All disabled people are to be given the same opportunities to take part in all sectors of society.
They should have the same right as any other person to a safe, secure childhood, personal development, education, work, and the opportunity to pursue a life rich in culture and leisure pastimes. Insofar as this is possible, everyone should have the right, based on their own ability, to determine the course of their own lives and live an independent life.
Disabled people have the same rights and obligations as others. However, shortcomings in the environment can be seen as obstacles. The municipality bears a special responsibility for individual initiatives regarding the disabled. All support programmes introduced for individuals are intended to promote an independent, meaningful, and autonomous life.
