Disability Awareness Raising Grant 2018
The National Disability Authority has been awarded funding in 2018 to provide a grant for an initiative to promote Disability Awareness.
One grant will be awarded in 2018.
Under the Comprehensive Employment Strategy for Persons with Disabilities2015-2024 employers are recognised as a key element in supporting the employment of persons with disabilities.
There is also a commitment within the National Disability Inclusion Strategy 2017-2021 requiring all public bodies and government departments to provide disability awareness training for their staff.
As a means of developing strong proposals, the National Disability Authority wants to receive joint applications from organisations that have worked with people with disabilities and mental health difficulties and with employers.
