The National Disability Authority (NDA) is currently developing its strategic plan for the period 2022 to 2024. This process will involve consultation with both internal and external stakeholders of the NDA. We are doing this to ensure that the views and concerns of all stakeholders are taken into account as we develop our strategy. We expect that the new strategy will successfully guide the direction and set the tone of the work of the NDA over the next three years.
The National Disability Authority (NDA) has recently been given responsibility to report on the operation of the Irish Sign Language (ISL) Act 2017 to Government on behalf of the Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth.
Two research projects were awarded funding. They are:
Adult Autism in Homelessness: Prevalence, Experiences and Support Needs in an Irish Context - A Mixed Methods Study and People with a Disability Experiencing Homelessness
