Members of Waterford CYPSC and additional agencies completed a number of workshops facilitated by the Disability Equality Specialist Support Agency (DESSA) in Autumn ’17.
Thirteen individuals from eight agencies attended. Out of this work a disability inclusion framework policy was presented to the CYPSC committee in Spring ’18 for discussion and adoption. On the basis of this work DESSA sought funds from the DCYA Innovation Fund to develop the work further and this was successful. This work will be developed in Autumn ’18.
