BUDGET 2018 - RESTORATION OF 100 GUIDANCE POSTS

The Institute of Guidance Counsellors welcomes the 100 additional guidance posts announced in Budget 2018. This will mean that 500 guidance posts will have been reinstated (out of 600 which were previously cut). The budget states that these posts are to be allocated separately and transparently.

Much credit should go to those who contacted their politicians, in particular our president Eddie McGrath and our Vice President Beatrice Dooley. Additionally our Vice President organised the development of the Pre-Budget Submission with input from our policy subcommittee and the adult guidance subcommittee.

We are committed to our campaign to achieve full restoration of our allocation.
