Disability Action 30 Years

30 years of action: 1986-2016. Disabiltiy Action 30th birthday logo

Disability Action celebrates our 30th birthday in 2016

Disability Action, the leading Northern Ireland disability charity this year celebrates its 30 Year Anniversary and to celebrate we have lined up a series of exciting events throughout the year.

We will be keeping you updated with all the details of these events through our website, newsletters and social media.

The theme for the year will be 30 Years of Actionwith many events centred on the history, not just Disability Action’s, but the disability rights movement in Northern Ireland.  By understanding the history, and reflecting on how the lives of disabled people have changed over the past 30 years, then we can learn and grow moving forward. 

Many people have been involved and worked with us over the years, those who have been on our board and developed and used services so we will be delving into our own archives to share photos and memories from across the years.  But we also want to hear your stories about your involvement with the organisation.  So if you have an old photo, press clipping or just a memory then we want to hear about it just use the hashtag #DA30years to share on social media or email us at marketing@disabilityaction.org

Of course we can’t turn 30 and not have a party to celebrate so we're planning a family fun day to bring people together who have been apart of the journey.  We'll also be popping up at different and surprising locations across Northern Ireland over the year.

A range of fundraising activities will take place, including a Gala Ball in September.  We want to encourage as many people as possible to get involved in fundraising events and activities to help us to continue the vital work that we do.

We hope that you will join us in celebrating our anniversary; we'll keep you posted on events and activities as they happen.
