Connswater Homes Disability Action Plan (2018-2023) is an important document. It is a statement of the Association’s commitment to and its proposals for fulfilling its statutory obligations in compliance with Section 49A of the Disability Discrimination (NI) Act 2006.

This Act places new duties on public authorities when carrying out their functions to have regard to the need:

  • to provide positive attitudes towards disabled people; and
  • to encourage participation by disabled people in public life

This plan is also important as it outlines how disability issues can be more effectively mainstreamed by the Association ensuring that they become integral to the whole range of policy areas and decision making structures within the Association.
