DSI Pre-Budget Submission 2019

Down Syndrome Ireland agree with many of the points raised by the Disability Federation of Ireland in their Pre-Budget Submission and would like to add Down Syndrome Ireland’s support for the measures they suggest to overcome poverty and increase independence and inclusion for people with disabilities. Ensuring that we have a disability friendly society which includes access to support and inclusive design of transport and infrastructure will improve inclusion across the board.

However, there are some things which affect people who have Down syndrome disproportionately, and we would like to highlight the following supports that would improve quality of life for our members in our Pre-Budget Submission.
