Notices of Motion

Councillor Cusack to Move:

This Council supports the choice of students to wear trousers as opposed to skirts and vice versa as part of their regulation uniform. In this age of equality, fairness and indeed comfort, no girl or boy should be forced to wear an item of uniform which is traditionally gender related. This Council will make contact with all schools in the City and District of both primary and secondary level to encourage and promote that this choice be included in their uniform policy. Furthermore, to contact the Education Authority and Education Minister seeking their support in this matter.

 

Councillor Mooney to Move:

 

This Council notes with concern figures showing that over a quarter (27.5%) of those who died from Covid-19 were people living with dementia and this is the most common underlying health condition associated with deaths from the virus. 
 
This Council welcomes the Minister for Health’s stated commitment to reforming Adult Social Care and urges his Department to heed Alzheimer’s Society’s “
The Fog of Support: An inquiry into the provision of respite care and carers assessments for people affected by dementia” to ensure those living with dementia are better protected now and into the future, specifically allowing loved ones of care home residents to be given key worker status.
  
This Council will commit to build on the work of Alzheimer’s Society of creating Dementia Friendly Communities by hosting a virtual ‘Dementia Friendly Workshop’ which will increase the awareness and confidence of our staff to better relate to, support and communicate with people with dementia to help tackle stigma, establish best practice and reduce barriers for our ageing population within our Council area.

 

Councillor Cooper to Move:

 

Mar eochair-thionsnamh tosaigh den Aonad um Chruthú Jabanna agus Scileanna, go n-aontaíonn an Chomhairle seo oibriú i comhpháirtíocht le forais eile san earnáil phoiblí, le solathróirí seirbhíse don ógra agus leis an earnáil phríobháideach chun Clár Samhraidh Fostaíochta don Ógra a fhorbairt a bheidh dírithe ar an aoisghrúpa 14-21 bhliain, go príomha ó cheantair dhíth ilchineálach.

 

Soláthróidh an intéirneacht ar íocaíocht seo cóir do na rannpháirtithe, cuirfidh feabhas ar a scileanna, tabharfaidh taithí oibre thairbheach dóibh agus feabhsóidh deiseanna fostaíochta fadtéarmacha faoi choinne daoine óga ó chúlraí íos-shocheacnaimíocha.

Agusba cheart don Chomhairle breathnú mar shamhail dea-chleachtais ar scéim fostaíochta don ógra i gcathair Bhostúin, a thairg 8,000 post do dhaoine óga ar fud chathair Bhostúin, fiú le linn na géarchéime Covid.

 

As a key first initiative of the proposed Job Creation & Skills Unit, that this Council agrees to work in partnership with other public sector bodies, youth service providers and the private sector to develop a Summer Youth Employment Programme aimed at 14-21 year olds primarily from areas of multiple deprivation.

 

This paid internship will provide participants with a decent wage, improve their skills, provide valuable work experience and improve long term employment opportunities for kids from lower socio economic backgrounds.
