The Government is committed to improving the lives of people with disabilities and their families through enhancing the quality of services and supports they receive.  The Programme for Government sets out an ambitious agenda for the provision of disability services.

Budget 2022 will provide €50m to support existing levels of service as well as new funding of €55m. 

The 2022 HSE National Service Plan is being developed.  The Plan will set out the type and volume of health and personal social services to be provided by the HSE in 2022, in line with priorities set out by the Minister for Health, and the longer-term transformation agenda for health and social care services in Ireland.  

The quantum of services to be provided by the HSE is being considered as part of the National Service Planning process. The Service Plan will be finalised in the coming weeks.
