National Disability Authority Annual Conference

The NDA Annual Conference, usually held in October every year, is an opportunity to share learning from Ireland and abroad on disability policy and practice around a particular theme. The conference is targeted to policy makers and Department and public officials but is also of interest to civil society, people with disabilities and their families, researchers and academics.

Previous Annual Conferences have focused on a variety of themes such as access to justice, achieving inclusive communities, housing, education and employment. Themes are linked to UNCRPD articles and are decided based on discussion with our board, knowledge of issues of concern to disability stakeholders, and knowledge of changes and developments in the disability landscape in Ireland.

During the COVID-19 pandemic our conferences were held virtually. Our 2022 conference on the theme of Accessibility (Article 9) will be a blended event with the in-person part taking place in Croke Park.
