Calls for more investment in intellectual disability services

The Chief Executive of St Mary`s Of The Angels Sr Colm says there needs to be greater investment in the area of services for people with intellectual disability. Speaking as the order prepares to hand over their care facility in Beaufort to St John of Gods she said St Mary`s will continue to belong to the people of Kerry. She says since setting up in 1966 the numbers they are dealing with have grown considerably. She says while the mindest towards intellectual disability has changed, more investment is required for both students and their parents.
