Services for People with Disabilities
Maria Corrigan (Fianna Fail)
I thank the Minister of State for the very positive response. Will he convey to the Minister that a requirement for all services in receipt of funding to implement guidelines for the investigations of allegation of non-accidental injury and sexual abuse should be included in the contractual agreement between the HSE and these services? There is no requirement for any service to do that. The inspection process should also include participation or a contribution from the individuals in receipt of service.
