Donegal Deputy slams decision to abolish Rehabilitative Training Allowance


A Donegal Deputy has slammed the Government for abolishing the Rehabilitative Training Allowance.
The allowance, worth €31.80 a week per student was granted to students with a disability who take up training programmes.
The HSE claims the decision to scrap the allowance is not a cost saving exercise and that it will not negatively impact on any adult with a disability as the money will be redirected to disability day services.
However, Deputy Thomas Pringle disagrees, he says this is a callous act on the most vulnerable and most in need of disability supports:
