Will you make One Simple Change? 

How do you order a meal when you can’t see the menu? Or wheel your chair through a tightly packed restaurant? The simple things in life can be incredibly difficult when you have higher access needs.

The #challengeaccess campaign

Challenge Access is a new campaign launched on the Late Late Show on Friday 7th April. Together with sponsors TTM Healthcare, campaign founder, Stephen Cluskey, is calling on communities, schools, councils, businesses and the wider public to pledge ‘One Simple Change’ to make Ireland a more inclusive place to live. If you missed it on the Late Late Show, you can catch the segment here on the RTE Player until Saturday 6 May 2017.

What One Simple Change should I make?

Accessibility means different things to different people. For a person with autism it may refer to sensory areas, to a wheelchair user the incline of a ramp, or for an individual with a visual impairment, it may be the ease- or otherwise- with which they can enjoy content online. 

For hundreds of ideas about what you can do to improve accessibility, and to pledge a change, please visit challengeaccess.ie. Spread the word and encourage others to get involved by sharing your pledge on social media using the hashtag #ChallengeAccess.
