Not my Independence Day!

Petition! As people regain their independence with the easing of the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, not everyone will be enjoying their full freedom.

Imagine never escaping the lockdown.

For people with physical disabilities, life can be a struggle with challenges, obstacles and restrictions that damage their independence every single day, not just during COVID-19.

Irish Wheelchair Association is highlighting that COVID-19 restrictions such as limits on travel distance, lack of access to pubs, restaurants and cinemas are only a small flavour of what it’s like every day for a person with a disability.

They’re asking people to sign their petition to demand the new Government takes real action to enable people with disabilities to live independently. https://www.iwa.ie/petition/
