Consultation on the Review of the Efficiency and Effectiveness of Disability Services in Ireland

Value for Money and Policy Review Initiative

The Office of Disability and Mental Health is currently conducting a Review of the Efficiency and Effectiveness of Disability Services in Ireland in the context of the Government’s Value for Money & Policy Review Initiative 2009-2011. This in-depth review of Disability Services will assess how well current services for people with disabilities meet their objectives and support the future planning and development of services. The evaluation will focus on the current provision of disability services and explore the way forward for the development of services within a value for money and policy framework.

As part of the review process we are conducting this consultation which seeks the views of persons interested in disability services . This questionnaire has been designed to allow those with an interest in this area to express their views, comments and suggestions.

Submissions should be made via this questionnaire which will remain available until 5pm on Friday 11th December 2009.

Submissions will be subject to the provisions of the Freedom of Information Acts and may be subject to release. If a person making a submission considers that any element in it is sensitive, those elements should be clearly identified and the reasons for the sensitivity should be specified. The Office will, where possible, consult with the person about any information which he/she has identified as sensitive information before making a decision in response to a request for release under the Freedom of Information Acts.

By completing this consultation questionnaire you will be contributing to the work of the Value for Money and Policy review. Please answer each question as fully as possible.

Thank you for your interest.
