We are The Disability Action Coalition.

We are campaigning for a new and secure future for our services.

Every day, in every county in Ireland, in respite, residential and day services, thousands of adults and children with disabilities are being cared for by the dedicated staff of independent voluntary organisations.

After years of underfunding, the future of our services is in crisis and at risk.

Organisations which are funded under Section 39 of the Health Act are facing particular challenges which makes their future even more insecure.

Now, a coalition of nine of Ireland’s largest independent disability service providers, all of whom are “Section 39”s, have come together, to make their voice heard, because enough is enough.

The Disability Action Coalition is a group of nine disability service providers campaigning for a new and secure future for our services and the thousands of adults and children with physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities, who use our services.

OUR MEMBERS

Every day, all over Ireland, we care for thousands of adults and children with physical, intellectual and sensory disabilities, and mental ill-health.

“A new vision is needed, a vision which recognises that there is a role for the independent not-for-profit sector; a vision which is recognised in legislation, which allows the sector to continue to do what it has shown itself well capable of: that is, enabling people with disabilities to live the life they want – and deserve – to have”
(Who Cares, Rehab Group, November 2018).
