Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) has a vision of an Ireland where people with disabilities enjoy equal rights, choices and opportunities in how they live their lives, and where our country is a model worldwide for a truly inclusive society.
To achieve this vision, high standards of accessibility across the built environment is of vital importance as, without the ability to get out and about, people with disabilities will never achieve a life with real equal rights, choices and opportunities.
We are delighted to present the fourth edition of IWA’s Best Practice Access Guidelines. These guidelines are informed by and directly respond to the experiences of IWA members who continue to experience poor accessibility within local communities that impose limitations on their daily lives. IWA will use these guidelines to advocate for improvements within public policy in respect of increasing access standards within legislation and to ensure that proper accessibility is built into all public buildings at design stage.
Join us for the launch on the 10th November 2020 to learn more about Irish Wheelchair Associations, Best Practice Access Guidelines, 4th edition and to understand more about the importance of access for people with physical disabilities.
