Disability Access and Equality Support

Local authorities support people with disabilities to access services more easily by providing ramps, sign interpreters, audio loops and information in accessible digital and print formats.

Under the Disability Act 2005, Carlow County Council, subject to certain considerations provided for in the Act, is required to ensure that access to services is integrated and to provide assistance to people accessing services. 

Carlow County Council endeavours to provide clean, accessible public offices that ensure privacy, comply with occupational and safety standards and facilitate access for people with disabilities and special needs. At Carlow County Council we are committed to equality, inclusion and providing services that are accessible to the whole community. We are strongly committed to universal access.
