Clare Rohan enjoying the launch of Hear Us Now
Hear Us Now is a short documentary based on what real inclusion means to each individual with intellectual disabilities and their families. Along with the importance of having meaningful work with pay and being afforded the same opportunities with freedom, choice and respect to live independent lives in their communities. Developed by Saint John of God Killarney Community Programme , Kerry Parents & Friends Association, service managers Claire O’ Dwyer and Maura Crowley , parents and the support of employers of those attending both services .
Real social inclusion means interacting with others who are not paid staff, family members or other people with Intellectual Disability.
Real social inclusion means access to a paid job, social roles and relationships with non-disabled citizens.
Have you thought about including a person with Intellectual Disability in your work force?
This project was funded by South Kerry Development Partnership and Kerry Education Training Board in association with the two service providers. Special thanks to Tadhg Hayes who filmed the documentary and Ruti Lachs who supported the music tuition.
