Over €2.24m to address mobility issues in Wexford

More than  €2.24 million has been made available to support home adaptations for older people, people with a disability and people with mobility issues in Wexford.
According to Minister Paul Kehoe, some 80% of the funding has come from the exchequer – while the remainder is made up by Wexford County Council.
The funding, which has been increased this year, will enable older people and people with disabilities to remain living independently in their own homes for longer and will also facilitate early return from hospital.
“This funding is extremely important to assist some of our most vulnerable residents in Wexford with the most basic of needs,” Minister Kehoe said.
“I’m delighted to see the Government increase this funding again this year,” he added.
“I am confident that today’s allocation will continue to build on the progress made since the introduction of this scheme in 2007 and it will demonstrate the Government’s continued commitment to older people and people with a disability,” Minister Kehoe said.
