DFI's Involvement with the Department of Social Protection

How you can get involved

The Disability Federation of Ireland interacts with the department in a number of ways, both formally and informally to ensure that the lived experience of people with disabilities is brought to the bear on policy decisions taken by the Department.  This section outlines the structures through which we engage with the Department, the structures we have to assist DFI members and people with disabilities to become more involved in engagement with the department, as well as submissions and news.
