Sean Crowe TD visited WALK service-users from LINC and RLT

11 August 2017

Sean Crowe TD visited WALK service-users from LINC and RLT to give a talk on his role as a TD in Leinster House this week. Service-users asked many important questions and led positive discussions about disability rights, inclusion, and equality with their local representative. Service-users raised the issue of the government's failure to ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (UNCRPD), and described some of their own experiences of discrimination due to their disability. Deputy Crowe felt that the government were dragging their feet on the ratification of the UNCRPD, and stated that the government have argued that they cannot yet allocate the resources required to ratify the convention. He stressed the importance of people with disabilities having their rights respected in society, to the agreement of those present."
