Inclusion Ireland got funding from the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission for a project on the Public Sector Duty.
A steering committee of 6 people with intellectual disabilities was picked for the project. This committee helped plan and carry out the project.
The project comes with two booklets, a guide called What is the Public Sector Duty? and a checklist called Checking a Public Service for Accessibility.
Both booklets are in easy-to-read, accessible formats.
You can view and download the two documents here:
As part of our project on the Public Sector Duty, Inclusion Ireland developed a training program that can be delivered by people with intellectual disabilities to their peers. There is an accessible presentation to inform people of their rights when engaging with public services.
