Description:
The ‘Mainstreaming for Me’ project took place between April 2005 and June 2006 and was planned to complement and support the creation and implementation of the National Disability Strategy. Disability Federation Ireland (DFI) successfully sought funding for this project from the Dormant Accounts Disbursement Fund to research the current experiences of people with disabilities when accessing public services and also the experiences of service providing organizations, voluntary and statutory, in relation to the planning and delivery of inclusive and accessible services to the public. The overall aim was to allow participants to become more informed about those changes and have a greater understanding of the ongoing challenges for all the stakeholders involved in implementing mainstreaming. This project was also designed to build on previous collaboration between disability organisations and statutory agencies, specifically a series of nationwide seminars organised by DFI entitled ‘The Road to Mainstreaming’ in 2000-2001 and a major Seminar entitled ‘Living in the Mainstream’ held in Limerick in 2003.
