Invitation to online launch of exciting new project in South Dublin area: Making Inclusion a Reality

You are invited to attend the launch of “Making Inclusion a Reality”, a project being delivered by Independent Living Movement Ireland (ILMI) and South Dublin County Council (SDCC), funded by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC).

“Making Inclusion a Reality” will support the inclusion of disabled people in developing and implementing housing policy and provision in the South Dublin County area. ILMI would like to support the establishment and capacity building of a network of disabled people, from the South Dublin area, as a central part of this initiative. Through funding from the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC), Values Lab will be supporting us with this work.

We are inviting you to participate in an introductory online forum for this project. The online forum will provide information on the project and open up a discussion on how best to progress this participation by disabled people in the South Dublin County area.

Date: Thursday 21 January 2021

Time: 11am to 1pm
