In accordance with the New Decade New Approach, Department For Communities Minister Carál Ní Chuilín this week published a timetable for the development and delivery of the suite of Social Inclusion Strategies and the membership of the Expert Advisory Panels who will take forward the first stage of this work.

We are very proud of our colleague Sean Fitzsimons who has been appointed to DfC's Disability Strategy Expert Advisory Panel (outside of his work at Disability Action). Sean is a disabled professional and activist working in the field of disability rights. He is intimately aware of the barriers, challenges and social injustices that disabled people face and is widely respected for his ability to contribute, positively challenge, negotiate and influence at the highest levels.
