DFI NDS Submission to the NDA Consultation

Issued on February 14 2024

Consulting on a new National Disability Strategy

The Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth is currently coordinating work across Government to develop Ireland’s next National Disability Strategy, which will be the successor to the National Disability Inclusion Strategy 2017-2022. Ireland ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) in 2018. The new strategy seeks to progress Irelands implementation of the UN CRPD.

As part of the development of the new strategy, a public consultation is underway. The consultation aims to get the views of Disabled Persons Organisations, people with disabilities, parents and carers and other disability stakeholders on what they would like to see in a new strategy that would improve the lives of disabled people. The Department have asked the NDA to run parts of the consultation.

DFI have made a submission to the consultation which is available here. 

This part of the consultation process has now closed.
