Disability Action works to ensure that people with disabilities attain their full rights as citizens, by supporting inclusion, influencing Government policy and changing attitudes in partnership with disabled people.
Disability Action is unique in its work, as it is the only Northern Ireland wide pan disability organisation working with disabled people with various disabilities; physical, mental, sensory, learning and hidden. Our work is important as one in five people in Northern Ireland has a disability.
As a campaigning body, we represent the views of our 100 member groups, working to bring about positive change to the social, economic and cultural life of people with disabilities and consequently to our entire community.
We offer a range of services including Information ; Policy, Employment and Training Support, Capacity Building, Training on Disability & Diversity Issues, Transport and Mobility Assessment, all aimed at improving the quality of life of people with disabilities in Northern Ireland.
Disability Action has four offices. Its Headquarters in Belfast, and three local offices in Derry, Dungannon and Carrickfergus each providing a range of services.
