I welcome the opportunity to speak on the Revised Estimate with reference to disability services in this important debate. I listened with great interest to the views and concerns expressed by Deputy Stephen S. Donnelly. Ministers had an important meeting on the health service this morning, at which we addressed the issues of accountability and proper management in the health service. We are listening to Deputies' views and pushing the accountability agenda. I am specifically demanding investment in disability services, reform and accountability. My aim is to empower people with disabilities to live independent lives, provide them with greater independence in accessing the services they choose and enhance their ability to tailor the supports they require to meet their needs and plan their lives. In this context, I am particularly pleased that the €30 million in additional funding secured last week will support the programme for Government commitment to ensure all 18 year old school leavers with disabilities will have access to supports and services which meet their needs at this crucial point in their lives. Service providers must also be able to respond effectively and sensitively when people experience crises in their lives and require immediate support. The additional funding secured will also cover costs incurred in meeting compliance with national residential standards, services provided to meet the changing needs of people with disabilities and emergency residential places already provided. It is important to get that message across.
Deputies should note that funding of €1.56 billion was allocated by the Health Service Executive for disability services in the national service plan 2016. Together with the additional €31 million I managed to secure last week, the total allocation for disability services now stands at €1.59 billion. We must ensure these services are managed efficiently and properly. Investment will be made; reform will be introduced and accountability achieved.
