Strategic Plan 2001-2003

Overview

This is the first strategic plan of the National Disability Authority since its establishment on 12 June 2000 under the National Disability Authority Act 1999. The Authority is required, under its founding legislation, to prepare a three year strategic plan 'as soon as practicable after the establishment day' and to submit it to the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform for approval.

The Authority intends to work closely with mainstream and specialist agencies and to operate on as broad a consultative basis as possible, through advisory committees, working groups and other mechanisms. This should greatly assist in both monitoring the implementation of this Plan and in developing future strategies.
