The Finnish Association of People with Physical Disabilities engages in advocacy and service provision for people with physical disabilities or functional impairments.

We are the voice of the disabled during planning and decision-making, support member associations, inform the public about disabilities, and provide assistance to disabled people at different stages of their lives.  
The Association has 149 member associations, which have a total of 30,000 individual members. 

Become a Member 

The best way to get involved is to join one of our member associations. Join us in working towards equality and accessible design in Finland! 

If you do not have a printer available, contact the Union and ask for a membership application form to be sent by mail.

When we receive a membership application, we will send it on to the correct member association. The member association’s board decides whether to admit new members.
