I did a lot of work at the time but I didn’t get any money.
This was not right.
Those workshops are now closed,
but we need to make sure they don’t reopen.
I did courses to learn to read and write and work on computers.
It is very important to get proper money for working,
a disability allowance and the support needed to work.
People are afraid of losing their benefits if they work.
People need to change their attitudes.
People with intellectual disabilities can do good work.
There needs to be more awareness for employers
to take on people with disabilities and
treat them the same as everyone.
People with disabilities should not be
bullied on transport or in work.
Finding a job can be hard.
We have some systems in Ireland but this
doesn’t work for a lot of people as they need more support.
Many people just stay in day services
and no one expects them to get a job.
Transport is really important for people to get to work,
they need access to transport and training.
Everyone deserves the same chance to
work and the support to make it happen and live a good life.
Working changed my life a lot and now I have a good life.
