Disability Federation of Ireland
Quality in the Mainstreaming of
Services for People with Disabilities
“Getting the Balance Right”
12th November 2010
National Standard Authority of Ireland, Santry, Dublin 9
Disability services have been subject to a wide variety of developments such, as Charities Legislation, HSE Service Level Agreements and the development of HIQA Standards for Residential Services. The issue of ensuring quality in services is a consistent theme in all of these developments. The purpose of this conference is to highlight the importance of using quality systems in managing services for people with disabilities, and also to investigate the challenges in introducing such systems while remaining true to the spirit of the mainstreaming of services for people with disabilities.
This conference will examine the meaning of ‘quality service’, when the objective is to enable full citizenship for people with disabilities. It will consider how voluntary disability organisations can deliver quality disability-specific services in a mainstream world.
