Note on Engagement with Persons with Disabilities and DPOs
If you’re a government or public sector official this paper will explain everything about disability stakeholders in Ireland as well as the growing role of Disabled Persons’ Organisations.
Disabled Persons’ Organisations are organisations that are led by people with disabilities. These organisations are rooted in the principles and rights of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).
Our paper outlines the obligations that the government and public bodies have when consulting with disabled people as well as advice on how to engage with Disabled Persons’ Organisations.
