Founded

Irish Council of People with Disabilities Ltd. was founded in 10th March 1999

Description

In 1995, one of the first decisions made by the Rainbow Coalition's Commission on the Status of People with Disabilities was to establish the Council for the Status of People with Disabilities, which had elections to its network and National Board and was launched with Mervyn Taylor, the Labour Party Minister for Equality and Law Reform on the 11th March 1997 in the presence of Mary Robinson, the then President, and international delegations. We nominated Ireland for the Special Olympics and the Roosevelt Award and had a special members conference, at which changes were made to the constitution effective 1st January 1999. In the night before the National AGM, the Minister of Justice, Equality and Law Reform (John O'Donaghue) created a press releases announcing a six person steering group would be established, and ICPD Ltd was incorporated, with the Constitution as the basis of the objects in the Memorandum and Articles of Association.

Run voluntarily without income and expenditure, we represented the members winning moral victories against the machinations if "[email protected] who thinks he is GOD" in court cases, upholding the rights of people with disabilities, which resulted in public humiliation on the positions taken by the Minister of Justice. This later became incorporated as the political-manipulated body known as People with Disabilities in Ireland Ltd (PwDI).

As a result of a decision by Kathleen Lynch and signed by Alan Shatter, PwDI Ltd, will not receive any funding after 31st December 2011 - and thus the board cannot allow the Company to continue to trade, with the obligations the Department of Justice has signed off on for Premises and staff - this would be "reckless trading"; as a result the majority of the board of ICPD Ltd haveagreed to reinstate ICPD Ltd as a Company Limited by Guarantee to continue legal effect on behalf of the members and networks, to run on a voluntary capacity, to assist them to find other funding streams from public funds.
ICPD Ltd, itself never traded, or had any income and expenditure (not picked up by its voluntary board), and thus can assist in keeping the members and networks not incorporated with legal identity.
