A Leaders Reflection
” I live independently. On my own. I can only do this with the support of Personal Assistants.
It is just wonderful to live independently in my own house, my own home. I could not live independently without the support of my PA’s. ………..
From my perspective “the cuts” have already affected the provision of PA’s in the Cork region. …….
In the future, my hope is that direct payments will be made available to some Leaders……….. However in the meantime the the Cork Centre for Independent Living provides this very worthwhile PA service to me and PA’s and living independently gives me a much improved quality of life which I enjoy very much.
P.A’s and their work are priceless for the quality of life I enjoy. They give me choice, empowerment and above all, control over my own life.”
The Annual General Meeting
The AGM 2012 is planned for Monday September 3rd. For more information please conatct us directly
A Pilot on a New Flight Path
Áiseanna Tacaíochta is a new Direct Payment model being piloted in Ireland. This is a new departure in Irish policy but also an exciting one in terms of working towards the idea of funding following the individual instead of a service provider. This brings flexibility to a system which has previously been a seemingly rigid one. For more link to http://theatnetwork.com/
