Disability Federation of Ireland is undertaking a consultation on the draft State Report on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD). These consultations will inform their work as a member of the Disability Participation and Consultation Network, (DPC Network). This is a group of disability organisations funded by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth to improve the participation and consultation of people with disabilities in government decision making.
As part of the consultation, DFI will be holding three roundtables, each focused on a different topic in the state report. The dates, topics and times are:
2nd of March – Accessibility of the built environment, 2-2:30
4th of March – Access to services, 2-3:30
9th of March – Consultation and participation, 2-3:30
As the goal of the DPC Network is to promote the participation of people with disabilities, these roundtables will be open only to people with disabilities. Spaces are limited, and they ask that people only register for a maximum of two roundtables. To register, and to ask any questions, please email Meredith Raley at email@example.com.
