Leader Manual Launch

ILMI Leader Manual Launch June 20th

The ILMI Leader Manual was launched on the 20th of June and the energy in the room was palpable a big thank you to everyone who made it and especially to the guest speaker Mary Collins and video testimonial from Brian Dalton past participants of our Leader Manual training.

The chair Shelly Gaynor opened the event with an overview of the relevancy to everyday life of this resource. James Cawley ILMI policy officer gave the technical practicalities and it was his and Eileen Daly’s piloting of the training rollout for the Leader Manual that really brings this document to life.

ILMI’s CEO Damien Walshe spoke about the heart of the manual and the sterling work of pulling it all together by Susan O’Brien our super staff member in the West. Damien sketched out why this document is so important and how it came about the many Leaders who contributed and the authentic rights based Independent Living Philosophy underpinning the finished work. By Leaders for Leaders.

This Leader Manual is for everyone. If you have a PA service, want a PA service or are curious for someone you know then please feel free to make it yours or to share it around. Any queries please give us a shout on

All the best from the ILMI Team.
