Wed, March 24, 2021
Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Diversity Champion has reviewed the impacts of the Disability Discrimination (NI) Order following its 15th anniversary.
In a video message, Councillor Cara McShane praised the important and hard work of Council staff who have been involved in making Council buildings and services more accessible and inclusive for all users.
She said: “It’s important the spotlight remains on both equality and inclusion. I was especially pleased to see events, activities and practices in our services which brought people of all abilities together; as the breaking down of societal attitudes is essential.”
“As Diversity Champion I would urge everyone to reflect on the barriers others face in their everyday lives, not due to their condition but due to environmental barriers and help to make us all activists for equality”.
“There are future opportunities for equality and inclusion. All of us can make a difference; small drops can start a ripple, which can lead to a wave of equality for all.”
