Independent Living Movement Ireland (ILMI) launched its Leader Manual today. The manual is for people who want or have a PA service, or for anyone acting on behalf of others curious to learn more.
The Cork Access Group works to promote universal access for people with disabilities. Cork CIL leaders are represented on the Cork Access Group by Anita. If you want her to raise any access issues on your behalf, please contact us.
HSE Access Officers support staff to deal with issues such as access to buildings, how consent is obtained, how medication is explained, how appointments are managed and assigned, etc. Here are the contact details for Access Officers in the South/South West Hospitals Groups.
Congratulations to Cork CIL service user Norma Murphy who won the Rider of the Year Award at the Riding for the Disabled Association Ireland’s AGM on April 17th.
The Irish Field also covered the story.
An article in today’s Irish Examiner reported on Cork CIL service user, Seán Bosonnet. Suffering from progressively-worsening scoliosis since his teens, Seán finally received life-changing surgery in June, 2016, thanks to a voluntary medical support group called Straight Ahead Ireland. The charity provides surgery, support and medical equipment for children with orthopaedic conditions.
