This Reboot Republic episode talks with Longford native James Cawley, who is Policy Officer for Independent Living Movement Ireland (ILMI). James outlines his own experience of growing up in Ireland with a disability, his positive experience of an inclusive primary school, and also challenges of finding accessible housing. He discusses the key issues facing Disabled people in Ireland today, such as the need for a legal right to a personal assistance service , the institutionalisation of disabled people, major housing issues and the right to housing.
James outlines the necessity to include disabled people across society in all conversations, and why he remains hopeful for an inclusive Ireland where disabled people are treated with respect and live a life of their choosing with dignity. A great listen. For more information see @ILMIreland
