PWD Benefits and Services

Quezon City stands firm with its commitment in providing excellent services for the differently abled persons in the city. Last 2011, QC Mayor Herbert Bautista has signed the Executive Order No. 10 that established the Quezon City Persons with Disability Affairs Office (QC-PDAO) to provide to effectively address the issues and concerns of Persons with Disabilities. QC PDAO is the lead agency that will ensure the efficient and potent delivery of social services necessary to enhance the health, physical fitness, economic and social well-being of PWDs in the metropolis. Quezon City Government also generates its 1% of its general fund for the programs, projects, and activities for the Persons with Disabilities (PWD). This is also to address the PWD’s concerns and other vital issues that would result to decrease discrimination with their respective sector. This would also help the PWD’s foster their capacities to attain a more meaningful, productive, and satisfying life through establishing a free community.
