NATIONAL STANDARDS FOR RESIDENTIAL SERVICES IN SIGN LANGUAGE.
The National Standards for Residential Services for Children and Adults with Disabilities will apply to residential and residential respite services across disability sectors in Ireland, whether they are run by public, private or voluntary bodies or organisations. They give service providers a framework to develop person-centred care for all people with disabilities and promote services that facilitate a good quality of life. They were developed following extensive consultation with people from all across the disability sector.
Information on the standards is now available in sign language. For more
