Political Brief to Government
The story so far...
Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland (SBHI), is a national organisation that supports individuals living with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus (SB/H) in Ireland. SBHI would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the new Government. As with all newly formed Governments, our elected representatives (TDs) now have a renewed opportunity to show that people living with disabilities matter. It is our hope that you will put issues related to disability at the top of the political agenda.
This political brief sets out what actions elected representatives can take in relation to supporting those living with spina bifida and hydrocephalus, we have detailed them under the following key themes:
1. Ensuring equal rights
2. Right to adequate health services
3. Right to a life in the community
4. Right to access
5. Right to education
6. Right to employment
