Event description

Description

The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection is organising a wide ranging and extensive consultation process in relation to how it supports people with disabilities. To get your views on the issues, a series of consultation seminars will be held across the country in the following places: Dublin, Sligo, Limerick and Cork.


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 proposal relating to early engagement with people with disabilities in line with recommendations 9a, 9b and 10 of the Make Work Pay report. Those attending will take part in a number of facilitated group discussions.

One discussion will look at the idea of ‘early engagement’ in income support schemes. Early engagement means that if a recipient of a disability income support payment is able to work and want to work, the Department will offer every possible support at the earliest possible opportunity to help the recipient get a job. The other discussion will look at proposed changes to the age at which one disability income support payment (the Domiciliary Care Allowance) ends and another (Disability Allowance) starts.

Further information on the consultation process can be found on the Department's website: www.welfare.ie/en/Pages/Make-Work-Pay.aspx
