This paper presents a system of social and vocational rehabilitation in Poland. It describes the different elements of the system and the tasks that were imposed on them. The analysis shows that the system is quite complicated and provides many tasks. Existing solutions are random, scattered, chaotic and full of unclear organisational targets, measures and methods used in the system of rehabilitation of the disabled. Although the integrative model of rehabilitation is being promoted, one gets the impression that rehabilitation is a matter of the relevant departments and institutions only, and not the whole of society. This causes the rehabilitation of these people not to be effective enough especially as far as professional aspects are concerned. Among others, one can see the source of such situation in employing inappropriate or irresponsible people who are responsible for solving the problems of this social group. The analysis of the Polish model of rehabilitation of the disabled do not gives grounds to conclude that it is a good or bad system - this type of evaluation is determined by many factors, including primarily the subjective ones. However it may be stated that the system is optimal, taking into consideration the current socio-economic conditions, as well as political ones.
