Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, the NDA office will be closed until further notice.
We have implemented business continuity measures to maintain NDA operations and staff will continue to work remotely during this time. Our focus is to continue to operate business as usual, where possible, while protecting the health of our staff and stakeholders.
During this period, you can contact email@example.com, where your query will be redirected to the relevant staff member. Until further notice, our main contact phone number is unavailable.
Thank you for your patience at this time.
The NDA has been aware of a gap in the literature on the voice of persons using disability respite services. The literature instead is dominated by the voice of their parents and carers. This research aimed to redress that balance by broadening the evidence-base and increasing our understanding of perspectives of persons using respite services
The provision of reasonable accommodations to persons with disabilities is crucial in addressing the unique barriers - physical, organisational and attitudinal – that can be experienced in accessing, progressing in and retaining employment
The role of the Access Officer is to provide or arrange for and coordinate assistance and guidance to persons with disabilities accessing the services provided by the NDA. If you need help to use the NDA’s information and services, please phone (01) 608 0400 and ask for our Access Officer, Ruth O’Reilly, or email AccessOfficer@nda.ie.
