Description:
There are 400,000 people with disabilities in Ireland. Of these, 24% are unable to carry out everyday activities, while a further 43% experienced difficulty carrying out these same activities. (CSO, 2008)1 Approximately 32,000 of people with disabilities live in a residential home or hospital. People with disabilities can be marginalized in terms of health, housing, employment and social participation. In sustained endeavours to draw those who are marginalised from the periphery there have been developments in legislation, social policy and programmes. The Programme of Advocacy for People with Disabilities in the Community and Voluntary Sector is one such programme that was developed by the Citizens Information Board2. The Programme offers an advocacy service to those with disabilities who require an independent advocate to help them secure services that they might otherwise not receive. The advocates make a significant impact in the lives of those who used the service.
