Disability Advisory Group

The purpose of the Disability Advisory Group is to provide support, guidance and direction to Fermanagh and Omagh District Council (Elected Members and Officers) on matters related to disability.

The Disability Advisory Group will provide:

  • Access to expertise and knowledge.
  • Expanded communication links between individuals and organisations.
  • Advocacy and lobbying.

The updated Terms of Reference for the Disability Advisory Group can be accessed via the ‘Related Files’ section of this webpage, or by clicking here.


The group consists of both Elected Members and Volunteers who are co-opted from existing Groups.
