County Kildare Access Group
CKAN as a group would like to see the inclusion of universal design and accessibility to be taken into more consideration.
Accessibility is much more than physical access to buildings.
It is also about providing inclusive access to services, accessible workplaces and access to information.
Who we are:
CKAN are a network of individuals and organisations working towards making County Kildare inclusive & fully accessible to all.
As a group we support the removal of physical, attitudinal & communication barriers for all.
Working closely as stakeholders with Kildare County Council, we regularly participate in street audits to monitor the ongoing development and improvement of our County town’s infrastructure.
The group also works with local businesses and disability organisations (such as IWA, KARE, NCBI) in identifying priority accessibility issues locally.
13% of the population of Kildare or 27,768 people have at least one disability.
