Working Group on Disability welcomes Task Force on Personalised Budgets

The Working Group on Disability was pleased to see the announcement by Minister Finian McGrath that a Task Force on Personalised Budgets for those with disabilities will be established.

We welcome the formation of such a group, which will enable people with disabilities to have more control over the services and support they access in order to live independent lives and give them the opportunity to have support services tailored to their individual needs.

More information on the work of the task force is available from the Department of Health (Republic of Ireland) at www.health.gov.ie
