SWAN Ireland in a new national SWAN venture established in 2012.
The Social Work Action Network (Ireland) strongly condemns the Irish government’s recent decision to stop the crucial Mobility Allowance and Motorised Transport Grant schemes. This sudden decision was made on foot of a two year warning the Ombudsman Emily Reilly had given the government. She had advised the government that the schemes as they stood were in breach of equality legislation as they weren’t available to people over 66 years of age.
The SWAN Ireland winter bulletin 2012 is now available to download. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this edition of the bulletin. The amount of hard work and effort that has gone into establishing SWAN Ireland in the past few months is fantastic and exciting to see. We hope that 2013 will bring even more radical social workers, social care workers etc out in force!
