DEBRA Ireland has published our 2018 Pre-Budget Submission.

Our key asks are:

  • An increase in the weekly Disability Payment, to support people with disabilities living a more independent life
  • A cross departmental funding approach, worth 7 million, to address the inconsistencies and often inadequate Community Services and Supports on offer to people with disabilities.
  • An acknowledgement, by the Government, of the invaluable role carers play in our society in the form of an increase to the weekly Carer’s payment.
