Description:
The publication of A Strategy for Equality, the final report of the Commission on the Status of People with Disabilities, made 1996 one of the most significant years in NRB's three decade history. With government commitment to a comprehensive menu of radical change aimed at ensuring the achievement of real equality for people with disabilities, the future for Irish people with disabilities has never looked so bright. It was heartening and significant in reading A Strategy for Equality to note the many policies, directions, analyses and plans which tallied closely with NRB's submission to the Commission, Equal Status: a blueprint for action. NRB can be rightly proud of the role the organisation played in the impressive achievement that is the Commission's process, work and results. NRB staff were the catalyst for the design of the Commission's consultative process and facilitated the setting up of many of its listening meetings. NRB's Chief Executive was a full member of the Commission and participated in several of its working groups. Two NRB personnel served as technical rapporteurs to Commission working groups, while several NRB staff participated as members of a number of Commission groups teasing out key aspects of policy. An NRB staff member was entrusted with producing the paper which informed the Commission on the vital area of access. Support was extended by NRB to researchers and consultants working on behalf of the Commission . NRB's thinking informed the Commission on a multiplicity of levels and can be clearly discerned throughout A Strategy for Equality.
