Draft Disability Implementation Plan 2019-2022 Public Consultation

The Disability Consultative Committee now wishes to invite submissions from interested parties in relation to the Draft Plan.

The Sligo County Council Disability Consultative Committee was established by Sligo County Council as a sub-committee of its Housing & Corporate Strategic Policy Committee.  The role of the Committee is to advise Sligo County Council on policies and actions to remove barriers faced by people with disabilities in accessing infrastructure and services provided by the Council, and to promote inclusion, equality and coordination between service providers.  The Committee membership comprises of elected members and officers of the Council, representatives from the Health Service Executive, the Disability Federation of Ireland, the Public Participation Network (PPN), and groups/organisations representative of the disability sectors.

Sligo County Council adopted the "Sligo County Council Disability Implementation Plan 2008 - 2015" in 2008 which set out a programme of actions to address disability access deficits.  The Council, through the auspices of the Disability Consultative Committee, is undertaking a review of this Plan with a view to amending and updating it as required and to reflect the provisions of the National Disability Inclusion Strategy 2017 - 2021. The Disability Consultative Committee has prepared a "Draft Disability Implementation Plan 2019 - 2022", which has been approved by the Council for the purpose of public consultation.

The Disability Consultative Committee now wishes to invite submissions from interested parties in relation to the Draft Plan.  A copy of the draft Plan may be downloaded below or may be requested by email from draftdip@sligococo.ie or by telephone from Sinead Branley at 071 9111016.
