Members of Leap Deirdre Fitzgerald and Rachel Cassen gave evidence to the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Disability Matters last week in relation to the participation of people with disabilities in political, cultural, community and public life.  We spoke about the enablers of good lives, valued lives and where Leap thinks investment should go – towards resourcing children and families to stay on the inclusive life path, the availability of Personal Budgets and the creation of Inclusive Neighbourhoods. This discussion with the committee has been posted publicly on the Oireachtas website and is available for everyone to watch through this link:
