New Disability Inclusion Strategy

The Department of Justice and Equality is developing a new Disability Inclusion Strategy. Building on the first phase of this consultation process – which identified key themes for the new Strategy – the Department is now inviting views on a set of suggested objectives under the different themes such as education and employment.

The Department would now like to consult with people with disabilities and their families on these suggested objectives to get their views on

  • Any additional objectives to be included
  • Any proposed changes to the current objectives
  • Any objectives that should be removed
  • Which objectives should be prioritised

Invitation to attend the regional consultation meetings

To hear the views of people with disabilities and their families the National Disability Authority is organising a series of regional consultation meetings on behalf of the Department.
