Inclusion Ireland is a national rights-based advocacy organisation that is committed to the promotion of the rights of people with an intellectual disability and their families.

Driver of Change

Connect Family Network section

Inclusion Ireland is connecting parent and family disability support groups and helping them to share concerns, keep them informed and ensure that their voice is heard. This network also brings about greater participation of persons with a disability and their family members in the design and delivery of disability services and supports.

Changing Places section

We are looking to introduce fully accessible toilets (which include both a hoist and a changing bench) to public places such as shopping centres, libraries and sporting arenas around Ireland. These facilities save families from the indignity of having to use toilet facilities that are not suitable to the needs of their loved ones.

Self Advocacy Resource Unit section

Inclusion Ireland is striving to share information on rights, services, training and law which affect persons with disabilities and we hope that by sharing information and connecting with like-minded people we will help strengthen self-advocacy work across Ireland.

Aras Attracta section

Áras Attracta is a HSE-run facility in Swinford, Co Mayo that provides residential, respite and day service for adults with an intellectual disability and was the subject of the RTÉ Prime Time Investigations Unit’s ‘Inside Bungalow 3’ report in December 2014 which made for disturbing viewing.

Capacity Legislation campaign section

Latest information on the Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Bill 2013, the long-awaited repeal of the Lunacy Regulation (Ireland) Act 1871 and the Ward of Court system in Ireland.

Training calendar section

Inclusion Ireland runs a number of training workshops for groups and organisations throughout the year and the areas covered include advocacy, law and policy, wills and inheritance, social welfare issues, Hiqa standards, communication and accessibility, assisted decision-making and consent.
