ERSI Research Report

Thursday October 06 2011 11:08 AM

Report details the social and living conditions of people with disabilities.


Joan Burton TD, Minister for Social Protection, (Wednesday, 21st September 2011) launched a new ESRI report on the social and living conditions of people with disabilities.

The report was commissioned by my Department and is one of a series of five ‘social portraits’ of the lifecycle groups identified in the National Action Plan for Social Inclusion (NAPinclusion), the others being children, people of working age, older people and communities. The reports provide key facts and figures about vulnerable groups across the lifecycle in an accessible manner. The information is intended to assist policy makers and service deliverers to meet the national poverty target and the high level social inclusion goals set out in the national action plan. It also can inform the implementation of the National Disability Strategy.
