Description:
The Commission on the Status of People with Disabilities highlighted the need for sound knowledge and recommended that a National Disability Authority should be given a specific remit on disability research. The National Disability Authority was established on 12 June 2000, along with the launch of a mainstreaming approach to service delivery for people with disabilities. The principal function of the NDA is to advise my Department on developments relevant to policies that affect persons with disabilities. It also has functions in relation to the development and monitoring of standards, preparation of codes of practice, and, relevant to the theme of this conference, to engage in research and assist in the development of statistical information. My Department makes significant resources available to enable the NDA to carry out these functions, including its research brief. In this context, I also welcome the NDA's approach of consulting with all stakeholders in discharging its brief. Such consultation is essential if tangible results are to be achieved for the people with disabilities living in this country.
