Feedback wanted: Inclusion Ireland election manifesto (July, 2015)

Dear all

It probably has not escaped your attention that a general election is coming in the next 9 months or so. Inclusion Ireland and partners are hoping to have some disability issues in the manifesto’s of the political parties. Hopefully, some will then make it into the program for government. We have developed a draft manifesto. Please take a few minutes to look at it and let us know if we are on the right track or are missing something very important. Forward this to any of your contacts.
