Draft Disability Action Plan

All PCSPs are subject to the requirements of Section 49A and 49B of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (“Disability Duties”). These duties mean that PCSPs, when exercising its functions, must have due regard to the need to:
  • promote positive attitudes towards disabled people, and
  • Encourage participation by disabled people in public life
As part of this, Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP are required to produce a disability action plan showing how it proposes to fulfil the disability duties and submit this plan to the Equality Commission.
 
Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP have recently produced a ‘Draft’ Disability Action Plan which is currently out for public consultation and we welcome comment from your organisation.
 
The consultation period will run from 30 August 2019 to 22 November 2019 and we would welcome your views on our draft documents.
