National Federation Sub Committees and Working Groups

The National Federation establishes Sub Committees to deal with specific areas where in-depth consideration of an issue is required.  Working closely with our various Sub Committees, the National Federation develops policy positions on a wide range of topics for consideration and approval of our Board.

We are indebted to all the members of the National Federation’s various Sub Committees, including staff members, people who avail of intellectual disability services and volunteers, who provide invaluable support and expertise to the Secretariat Team on an ongoing basis.
