Right to Home Care


Monday April 24 2017 11:57 AM

Campaign update

Last year, MS Ireland joined forces with a group of 16 other NGOs calling on the Government to invest in home care services.

In January, Minister for Older People Helen McEntee announced that there would be a consultation regarding setting up a new statutory home care scheme that would guarantee home care as a statutory right. MS Ireland has worked with the other organisations involved in the campaign to develop a discussion document outlining the areas we believe the consultation should look at. This discussion document has been submitted to the Minister for consideration. Download Discussion Document
