Office for Disability Issues

The Office for Disability Issues (ODI) is a central unit that works across government to help make equality a reality for disabled people

Services provided:

The Office for Disability Issues (ODI) leads the government’s vision of achieving equality for disabled people.  They believe disabled people should have the same choices and opportunities as non disabled people.  They are a cross-government organisation that works with government departments, disabled people and a wide range of external groups.

They work collaboratively with government departments to make sure the needs of disabled people are reflected in their work and ODI’s own projects.  They provide strategic advice and analysis, they share tools and develop skills among government staff.

They engage with disabled people, disability organisations and service users, and believe that those affected by a service or policy should be involved in designing it. This co-production approach adds value to work across government and leads to innovative and practical solutions.

Additional information:

The ODI cannot advise members of the public on individual issues.
