Submission on Disability Allowance to Advisory Group on Tax and Social Welfare

The EAPN Ireland Europe 2020 Working Group has made a brief submission to the Advisory Group on Tax and Social Welfare which has been set up by the Department of Social Protection to look at various reforms to the current system.

The focus of our submission is on the specific proposals in Budget 2012 to reduce the Disability Allowance for people with disabilities aged 18-24 years. The Working Group strongly believes that there should be no changes to the eligibility criteria or levels of the Disability Allowance. What is needed is an increase in services and supports and addressing the barriers facing people with disabilities in accessing jobs, training and education. Read Submission here
