The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection is organising an extensive consultation process in relation to how it supports people with disabilities.
The purpose of this process is to engage with people with disabilities, parents of children with disabilities, and sectoral representatives and to seek their views on proposals relating to early engagement with people with disabilities in line with recommendations 9a and b and 10 of the Make Work Pay report.
To get your views on the issues, a series of consultation seminars will be held across the country. The seminars will take place in the following locations:
- The Gibson Hotel, Point Square, Dublin 1 on 27th February, commencing at 6:00pm
- The Clayton Hotel, Clarion Road, Ballinode, Sligo on 1st March, commencing at 10:30am
- The Strand Hotel, Ennis Road, Limerick City on 6th March, commencing at 10:30am
- The Kingsley Hotel, Carrigrohane Road, Sunday’s Well, Cork City on the 13 March commencing at 10:30am
To register for the consultation seminar of your choosing, you should use one of the links on: http://www.welfare.ie/…/Pag…/Make-Work-Pay-Consultation.aspx
