This is a national meeting of the National Platform of Self Advocates. The focus of this meeting will be Employment for People with Intellectual Disabilities. The meeting will be attended by Minister Finian McGrath who is interested in hearing what people with intellectual disabilities have to say. We want to hear what people have to say about the following:
1.What work are people interested in
2. What stops people from doing paid work
3. What supports do people need to find paid work
4. What ongoing supports do people need to stay in paid work
We want to develop an action plan that will lead to policy change and a good relationship with the private sector.
This meeting is for self advocates, Supporters and people working in the area of Rights and Disability are welcome to attend. Their discussion groups will be facilitated separately from self advocates.
