Statement published 14 July 2022

This Disability Action Plan for Northern Ireland shows how Ofcom proposes to fulfil its duties to have regard, when carrying out its functions, for the need to promote positive attitudes towards disabled people; and encourage participation by disabled people in public life.

Outlined in this document are some of the measures we have already taken in meeting these duties. The Action Plan in this document identifies the measures we commit to completing throughout this next five year period, in order to enhance what we have achieved so far in relation to improvements for disabled people, both within our organisation and in the sectors we regulate.

We recognise that for disabled people barriers exist to full participation in all aspects of public life, including societal perceptions. Our hope is that this Action Plan, working alongside our internal strategies, and our regulatory role, will combine to make a real difference to the lives of disabled people in our community.
