Supporting Independence to Persons with Disabilities Law, wholly implemented in October2006, is exerting a serious influence on daily life of Persons with Disabilities. Especially, two influences must not be neglected. There are "a problem of a supportingterm artificially established by law", and "a problem of a revenue source". And now, allof many problems including there two are more serious for community life of not onlypersons with disabilities, but also all citizens. To solve these problems, informal resources in each community are indispensable inaddition to formal support. But community welfare in Japan is faced with a shortage of innerregulation principle to drive forward. An Independence Support Conference to Persons with Disabilities, althought it is holdingremarkable difference of municipalities' temperature as of today, will be a bridgehead to finda way out of these difficulies. Various approaches by this Conference will be most effecive to break down a feeling of ablockade in welfare for persons with disabilities, and to aim at subimation to communitywelfare in a true meaning.
