DFID Disability Framework 2014

UK Department for International Development (DFID)

Disability Framework

Leaving No One Behind

December 2014

The Department for International Development (DFID) leads the UK Government’s work to end extreme poverty globally. Unless we, and other development actors, address the barriers people with disabilities face, many are prevented from benefitting from our development programmes. Many people with disabilities remain locked out of opportunities, and as a result are remaining locked into poverty.

This framework is aimed at DFID staff. It is intended to consolidate and explain the changes that are happening within DFID to strengthen disability inclusion in our policies and programmes, and outline the actions we are taking over the next 12 months. We will review and revise the framework annually, and are also making it publically available to explain the actions we are taking to an external audience.
