Disability Action Plan and Equality Action Plan

Draft Disability Action Plan and new draft Equality Action Plan - NOW CLOSED - FINAL REPORTS AVAILABLE

The Public Health Agency has developed a draft Disability Action Plan. We have also reviewed the actions identified as part of our audit of inequalities undertaken in 2010 and produced a new draft Equality Action Plan.

The purpose of our Disability Action Plan is to look at things we could be doing to promote positive attitudes towards disabled people and encourage their participation in our work areas. The Equality Action Plan looks at actions we could take to tackle inequalities across all equality categories.

We are now seeking views on our Disability Action Plan and Equality Action Plan, and would welcome you taking the time to respond to this consultation exercise. Details of how to respond can be found at the end of each document.
