THE INFLUENCE OF NONGOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS ON THE TOURIST-RECREATIONAL ACTIVITY OF DISABLED PEOPLE WITHIN THE LUBELSKIE VOIVODESHIP (Wplyw organizacji pozarzadowych na aktywnosc turystyczno-rekreacyjna osob niepelnosprawnych wojewodztwa lubelskie
The paper presents the influence of activity by organizations and associations on tourist-recreational activeness for disabled people within the Lubelskie Voivodeship. It has been shown that expectations addressed by disabled people to organizations, specialized institutions and associations for their assistance in organizing physical activities for the disabled are comparable to those submitted to their closest environment, namely family and friends. In the opinion of the disabled, these institutions do not fully carry out their tasks under the statutory guidelines. Disabled people, mostly alone or with the help of their closest supporter, organize physical and rehabilitative activities. In the case of disabled workers, the workplace provides them with some assistance in organizing their free time. The main barriers that limit the participation in tourist-recreational activities are, most of all, costs of participation in such events, the lack of offers from organizations and associations, and the sparse marketing activity from tourism-sector companies.
