New Disability Action Plan launched

19/12/2012

Belfast Health & Social Care Trust had developed and consulted on its second Disability Action Plan. One of the key elements in the development of the plan was collaboration and partnership working with disabled people and representative organisations.

 

Belfast Trust Board has now formally approved the finalised Disability Action Plan, which runs from June 2012 - April 2014. The plan outlines how the Trust will meet its legal obligations to promote positive attitudes towards disabled people and encourage the participation of people with disabilities in public life.

More than one in five people in Northern Ireland has a disability and it is important that the Trust is aware of and proactively acts upon its duties and responsibilities for both staff and service users with a disability.
