Our Homes: Home and Independence Project

The Inclusive Research Network published a ‘Our Homes’ report which is a book based on its research project. 


The Inclusive Research Network (IRN)  is made up of a group of self-advocates with an Intellectual Disability who carry out their own research on issues that affect their lives.

This report is evidence-based research that reflects the voices of people with disabilities, their experiences of moving to new homes and the supports that they received during the transition. 


Minister Kathleen Lynch, Minister of State at the Department of Health with special responsibility for Primary Care, Social Care (Disabilities & Older People) and Mental Health, launched the Inclusive Research Network  in the Castletroy Park Hotel, Limerick.
