Description:

This strategy (2012 – 2015) presents the Department’s commitment to improving outcomes, services and support for people in Northern Ireland (NI) who have a physical, communication or sensory disability.

It has been developed in accordance with the articles stated in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and therefore supports the values of dignity, respect, independence, choice, equality and anti-discrimination for disabled people. The principles of family and person-centred care and self directed support are promoted throughout the strategy and recognition is given to the need to adopt a life cycle approach to the provision of services and support. The requirement for integrated working, not just across government departments and health and social care organisations, but also in partnership with the third sector is emphasised throughout the document.
