Karatsu-shi Disabilities Support Center "LINK"
Karatsu-shi, Saga Prefecture:
The Karatsu-shi Disabilities Support Center called "LINK" was opened in an old Japanese-style hotel in the city in Japan's southern island on April 1. The city bought and maintained the hotel closed in 2010.
The Center has the function of the city's superannuated welfare hall for people with disabilities as well as the disabilities support department located in the city office building, to concentrate the function of the welfare for people with disabilities aiming at base facilities in the city where consistent support will be provided.
"LINK", the new name of the center, represents a
wish that everyone is connected in spite of a presence of a disability and lives a better life.
