Draft Disability Action Plan 2019-22

Closed 9 Jul 2019

Opened 16 Apr 2019


The purpose of the Disability Action Plan 2019 – 2022 is to:

  • ensure the council, working with communities and stakeholders, takes a lead role in improving the quality of life for disabled people in Belfast;
  • address the inequalities experienced by disabled people and to tackle the barriers that disabled people continue to face in our society;
  • meet our Disability Duties to “promote positive attitudes towards disabled people” and “encourage participation of disabled people in public life”.

You can view the draft Disability Action Plan 2019 – 2022 (and accompanying Equality Screening and Rural Needs Assessment) by clicking on the links at the bottom of this page. The Disability Action Plan is cross-departmental covering all our services.

Why we are consulting

We want to know what you think about our proposed actions in the Disability Action Plan 2019 – 2022. For example are they the right ones, is anything missing or do you have any ideas about what else you would like to see included?

We will use this feedback to agree and refine our Disability Action Plan and actions for the period 2019 – 2022.


What happens next

A feedback report will be brought to the Strategic Policy & Resources Committee in August 2019 so that they can finalise and agree the Disability Action Plan 2019-22.  A copy of the finalised plan will be available on the council website by September 2019.
