National Disability Strategy Consultation - Closing date for written submissions further extended to 11 February 2024

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 UNCRPD.

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 National Survey in now live and will remain open until February 11, 2024. If you interested in informing how the National Disability Strategy could improve the lives of disabled people in Ireland, we invite you complete this short questionnaire that will take 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
