DISABILITY ACTION

One in five people in Northern Ireland have a disability.  Disability Action believes in human rights for all and works to promote, protect and uphold the human rights of people with disabilities.  We are a Northern Ireland wide pan disability organisation working with disabled people with various disabilities; physical, mental, sensory, learning and hidden.

The Disability Research on Independent Living & Learning (DRILL) programme is a UK wide research programme delivered in partnership by four major pan-disability organisations in each of the UK nations – Disability Action, Disability Rights UK, Inclusion Scotland and Disability Wales.  The programme is creating a new and innovative research agenda in each nation and UK-wide.  We work with policy makers and senior practitioners to ensure that the research evidence informs positive policy and practice solutions to fit future economic and social trends.

Disability Action wishes to appoint to the following position: –

Impact Measurement Officer (Ref IMOD19)
