FRA discusses deinstitutionalisation in Ireland

The Agency will present to Irish stakeholders the findings of its reports on deinstitutionalisation for people with disabilities.

The three FRA reports look at: deinstitutionalisation plans and commitments; funding; and the impact this is having on people with disabilities. The meeting in Dublin on 9 February will allow people involved in the deinstitutionalisation process in Ireland to reflect on the reports’ findings and discuss how some of the challenges they raise can be tackled to make deinstitutionalisation a reality on the ground in Ireland.
