Here at Áiseanna Tacaíochta (ÁT), we're all about bringing everyone together to empower people with disabilities in being as independent as they can be and in taking control of their own lives, just like everybody else.
Moving to managing our own personal budgets and services
in a mainstream market environment.
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, mainly Personal Assistance.
We provide leadership and support to empower people with disabilities to live with the independence, choice and freedom that they are entitled to. By giving people with disabilities more control and independence, we are moving towards a fairer, more inclusive and progressive future.
