Deinstitutionalisation in Ireland; a failure to act

Over recent years, Ireland has done what other countries have done and started to stop the use of institutions for disabled people. In 2011, a report was published on institutions called ‘Time to Move on from Congregated Settings’. The report looked at a type of institution called a ‘congregated setting’ – where 10 or more people live. The report said that all congregated settings should be closed by 2018, but this didn’t happen. Many people who lived in an institution in 2011 still live there. Some people moved to a different type of institution, other people have died. This report looks at how the policy has failed.
