Proposed Disability Action Plan 2024-2027

Closes 6 May 2024

Opened 8 Feb 2024


Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council is conducting a consultation to seek your views on our Proposed Disability Action Plan 2024-2027.

This Plan states the commitment of Council to the promotion of equality of opportunity for disabled people and complements our Equality Scheme under Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998.

It has been designed to ensure that we fulfil our statutory obligations in compliance with Disability legislation.  

The Disability Discrimination Act places duties on us to:

  • Promote positive attitudes towards disabled people; and
  • Encourage participation by disabled people in public life.

These are collectively referred to as ‘the disability duties.’

The Council is committed to the fulfilment of its disability duties in all parts of the organisation and this plan sets out how it intends to do this.

Why your views matter

Our Proposed Disability Action Plan identifies how, within our resources we feel we can best meet the needs of disabled customers, colleagues and visitors to our borough. 

We report annually to the Equality Commission on our Disability Action Plan and your comments will help us to inform the content of the 2024-2027 Plan. 

We would very much like to hear what you think about this proposed plan and welcome your feedback.   

You are also invited to attend one of two online consultation events which will be held on the following dates;

  • Wednesday 28th February at 11am
  • Wednesday 10th April at 7pm

To confirm your attendance or for more information please email 

If these dates do not suit and you would like us to facilitate a face-to-face meeting to discuss the plans please contact us on 0300 0300 900 or via the above email.
