Áiseanna Tacaíochta (ÁT) is emerging as a leading organisation in the Independent Living movement in Ireland by facilitating a Direct Payments model to people with disabilities for the first time. Through Direct Payments, our members move from dependency on disability service providers to directing their own services.

We are working to create structural and cultural change for people with disabilities and their families by changing how disability is funded and how services are delivered in Ireland – as well as how we think about people with disabilities.
