Building on the success of last year's event at PRONI, the Department for Communities’ Disability Policy Team and Disability Action are again partnering on an event to celebrate the occasion.  

This year's theme is "Building Back Better: toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 world".  

The Minister for Communities will open the event and Patrick Malone, Disability Action’s Head of Policy, Comms, Information & Advocacy, will be the Master of Ceremonies.  The Disability Strategy Expert Advisory Panel will tell us about their work in making recommendations on the development of the new Disability Strategy, and we will hear from participants in Disability Action's ONSIDE Project about the benefits they have experienced from taking part in the Project.  The NI Civil Service Disability Champion, Ronnie Armour, will close the event.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's event will be held on Zoom.
