Report of the Working Group on Congregated Settings, Health Services Executive, June 2011.
Over 4,000 people with disabilities in Ireland live in congregated settings (with ten or more people). In 2007 the HSE set up a Working Group on Congregated Settings to develop a national plan and change programme for transferring people to the community.
