Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth Logo

The Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth is developing the successor strategy to the current National LGBTI+ Inclusion Strategy (2019-2021) to promote inclusion, protect rights and to improve quality of life and wellbeing for LGBTI+ people; enabling them to participate fully in Ireland’s social, economic, cultural, and political life.

As part of this process the Department wants to get the views and inputs of local LGBTI+ groups, community groups and relevant individuals, in a manner that will contribute to the development of a new Strategy.
