The Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) is a national organisation dedicated to the achievement of the full social, economic and educational integration of people with disabilities as equal, independent and participative members of the community. Our Association is made up of a vibrant network of 20,000 members and over 2,000 staff, as well as many dedicated volunteers. Together we work to achieve greater independence, freedom and choice for people living with a disability. IWA provides a wide range of services including Resource and Outreach Centres, Holiday Centres and Assisted Living Services. Since the Association was founded in 1960, access has been high on the agenda of our members. This was evident in the recent consultation process for IWA’s strategic plan 2008-2011 Your Life – Your Way. This consultation process identified access to the built environment as the single biggest issue for IWA’s membership. It was also widely acknowledged that access issues had a direct impact on other priorities such as employment, housing, parking and transport.
