Acknowledgements

I would like to acknowledge and thank a number of people that made this project possible. First I would like to thank the participants in each of the focus groups for their time, views and frank opinions. Second I would like to acknowledge the assistance of different agencies and service providers in the recruitment process and, on occasion, organising transport for the participants. Third, I would like to thank the staff of the National Disability Authority for their assistance and expertise throughout the project.
