The number of people who consider barrier-free to be a new value for society is growing every day – currently 83% of Ukrainians think so.

These are the results of a study conducted by the Center for Social Research and behavioral economics with the support of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the Accessibility Communications Council, using the methodology and analytics of Advanter Group and Gradus research.

Barrier-free – this is a new value for our society. 83% of respondents named it as such. This is a very large percentage, a large consciousness. Finally. If so many people realize barrier-freeness as a value – we are on the right track as a society, – stressed the first lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska.

Responsibility for accessibility:

  • More than half of Ukrainians (over 50%) believe that the creation of an inclusive space is the responsibility of the state and local authorities.
  • Almost every fourth Ukrainian answered that they personally participate in the elimination of bars&rsquo ;ers.

Improvement of communication and infrastructure:

  • About a third of respondents emphasize the importance of changing people's behavior (34%) and creating an adaptive environment (32%).
  • 22% of respondents noted that it is necessary to ensure the availability of education and workers places.

Areas requiring accessibility:

  • 57% of Ukrainians believe that, above all, the field of employment should be barrier-free.
  • Almost half of the respondents support infrastructure change.
  • 37% are in favor of removing barriers for older people.

Details about the research:

The research was conducted using the methodology and analytics of the Advanter Group and Gradus Research organizations. The main goal was to find out the opinions of Ukrainians regarding barrier-free accessibility and ways to improve communication during the implementation of such policies.
