Make Work Pay formats available for the hearing and visually impaired 

The Government wants people with disabilities to be able to work if they want to. In Ireland, if you have a disability you are less likely to be working than a person without a disability. In fact, people with disabilities of working age are only half as likely to work as other people of working age.

Many people with disabilities would like to work. And for most people who get disability payments, work actually pays better than social welfare.

Read more about the Make Work Pay Report recommendations in accessible formats here. These include captioned sign language videos, audio recordings and braille versions of the report.

The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection organised a wide ranging and extensive consultation process in relation to how it supports people with disabilities which closed on the 13th of April, 2018.

The purpose of this process was to engage people with disabilities, parents of children with disabilities, and sectoral representatives and to seek their views on proposals relating to early engagement with people with disabilities in line with recommendations 9A, 9B and 10 of the Make Work Pay report.

The Department would like to thank those who were able to attend the consultation events, complete the survey questionnaires, or send in a written submission.

The online surveys are now closed and the their results, and the views expressed in the consultation events and written submissions, will be considered by the Department and disability representative groups and organisations within a stakeholder’s forum.
