The National Federation's Disability Policy Library Tool

(01 Oct 2015)

The Disability Policy Tool – A library at your fingertips

A wealth of policy and legislative developments have taken place recently in Ireland that are relevant to people with disabilities and those that support them. Through our work at the National Federation of Voluntary Bodies we have found that there are many who have found it difficult to keep up to date on all of these areas and who can find the range of information overwhelming. 







In response, the National Federation has developed a reference guide to provide information on the policy areas that are most relevant to people with disabilities, their families, staff and management in organisations. This library tool gathers existing information on the policies and laws most relevant to people with disabilities and their families, including:

  • the policies themselves and relevant legislation;
  • information that is developed to inform families;
  • easy to read and accessible information;
  • updates on 'What is happening now?' in particular policy areas; and
  • a summary of the key aims of the policy in question.

The tool will be updated on a quarterly basis and published on the National Federation website.  We hope that the tool will be of benefit to people with disabilities, their families, staff and policy makers.

The tool is available to download online. Please note - to ensure the tool works correctly you must first click on it and then download the PDF to your computer to ensure that the clickable buttons work.

The buttons on the clickable tool work only from the PDF when downloaded onto your computer -  but do not work correctly using the document online. If using the document online you can scroll through as a document.
