Independent Living Movement Ireland – Working Group on Deinstitutionalisation:

  • Discussion space to inform ILMI representation on key spaces including HSE Advisory Group in relation to under 65’s in Nursing Homes
  • Zoom, Thursday 29th October 2-3pm 


Deinstitutionalisation and the right to live in the community is a core objective of ILMI to realise the rights of disabled people to choose where and who they live with and to have the appropriate supports to be in control of their lives.

ILMI is calling disabled people to join a working group to develop our thinking on how best to inform practice and policy to ensure the State moves to compliance under Article 19 of the UNCRPD.

ILMI has a representative on the HSE Expert Advisory Group being established to support the HSE Under 65’s in Nursing Homes project, which is funded through the Service Reform Fund.

A key role for the ILMI working group on Deinstitutionalisation will be to develop collective analysis to support our representative and also provide a sounding board to tease out information from the Expert Group and develop strategic responses.
