Social protection for people with disabilities - Ireland

This report analyses some important cash and in-kind social protection provisions available to adult people with disabilities (i.e. people aged 18 or above). In line with Article 1 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), “people with disabilities” should be understood as “those who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments which in interaction with various barriers may hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others”.
