Get Those Disability Stories Into Us So We Can be Heard!

A ground-breaking new campaign, which will launch this autumn, will showcase the incredible value and impact of the charity and community sector. Funded by the Community Foundation for Ireland via RTÉ does Comic Relief Fund, it has the budget to make a real impact.


It’s a unique campaign in that it covers charity, community, voluntary and social enterprise organisations. One of our biggest challenges is finding a name that really covers this great diversity!

DFI is one of six umbrella organisations on the campaign Steering Group. Over 470 representatives from across the sector attended virtual Town Hall meeting over the summer. Excellent training in communications has already been taken. Exciting details of further training will be sent to you via email tomorrow.


Tremendous groundwork is being done right now that will lay the foundations of the multi-media ad campaign this autumn. Everything will revolve around strong stories of the work we do. The professionals running the campaign will choose stories that show impact – that is first-hand personal accounts of the difference your work makes.


Make sure the disability voice is heard. We’d encourage you not to assume someone else has a better tale to tell.  Reflect now on the stories you have and the work you do and get in touch with our Communications Manager Clare Cronin at We’d be happy to act as a sounding board.
