Rehab Group Say Axing The Training Allowance Should Be Reversed.

: 08/19/2019 - 16:32

Rehab group is calling for the axing of a disability allowance to be "reversed" or "stalled".

The Rehabilitative Training Allowance funding for college students goes towards activities, transport and daily needs.

The funding amounts to just under 32 euro per person per week.

The cut comes as thousands of pupils will enter third-level education in the coming weeks.
