Family Carers Ireland is holding a protest outside Leinster House on Wednesday, October 16th from 11am-12pm in response to Budget 2020.
We have been asked by family carers to take action to send a clear message to Government that their repeated failure to address the homecare crisis and improve supports and services amounts to exploitation.
Budget 2020 is a damning indictment of Government’s attitude towards Ireland’s 355,000 family carers who save the state €10bn every year.
While we acknowledge that it will be difficult for many family carers to attend we would urge you, your family and friends to join us if at all possible.
For those who simply cannot attend, please ensure your voice is heard by adding your name to our petition here.
“Carers have been saying that last night and today, we need to do something drastic so I think we may very well see carers and Family Carers Ireland protesting outside the Dáil next week.” #VMNews #Budget2020 https://t.co/iSTxi2tZxN
