Disability duties, which came into effect on 1 January 2007, task public authorities with promoting positive attitudes towards disabled people and encouraging the participation of disabled people in public life.
Public authorities are also under a duty to produce disability action plans to illustrate how they propose to fulfil these duties. Action plans were submitted to the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland in June 2007.
We would welcome any comments or suggestions on the Action Plan, which is a living document. Any further comments received will be considered in future revisions of the plan.
