On Tue, Nov 19th, the Dáil unanimously agreed a motion put forward by Deputy Thomas Pringle TD on a right to a Personal Assistance Service (PAS) for disabled people. While an important milestone, this is just the first step on a long journey.
Government buildings local and national, major companies, civic and educational institutions, even a Dublin bus are all turning purple (#PurpleLights19) to celebrate the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities (#IDPwD19) on Dec 3rd.
Often a cup of tea, a handshake, and a friendly chat can go a long way. Cork Penny Dinners works every day to provide freshly made meals and a warm atmosphere to the homeless and to those in need in Cork City. Their services are free of charge.
This Christmas, Cork CIL has chosen to support Cork Penny Dinners instead of posting seasonal greetings cards. If you would like to join our effort for this worthy cause, donations of non-perishable foods, kitchen items, and warm clothing, would be greatly appreciated.
To incorporate changes in legislation, our Maternity, Paternity, and Parental Leave Policies have been updated. The changes increase your entitlements and options. If you have children and have not availed of all your entitlements, recently given birth, or are pregnant, please read the updated policies.
