Disability Action Plan

Under Section 49a of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (as amended by the Disability Discrimination (Northern Ireland) Order 2006), public authorities when carrying out their functions must have due regard to the need to:

  • promote positive attitudes towards disabled people; and
  • encourage participation by disabled people in public life.

The two duties are collectively referred to as ‘the disability duties’. Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council have designed their Disability Action Plan (DAP) 2016 - 2020 as our commitment to fulfilling these duties in relation to its functions.

Disability Action Plan

Information will be made available on request in accessible formats such as Braille, audio formats and large print. Information will also be provided in minority languages to meet the needs of those who are not fluent in English.

Alternative Formats

To ensure equality of opportunity in accessing information, we provide information in alternative formats on request, where reasonably practicable.  Where the exact request cannot be met we will ensure a reasonable alternative is provided.

Alternative formats may include Easy Read, Braille, audio formats (CD, mp3 or DAISY), large print or minority languages to meet the needs of those for whom English is not their first language.
