Access initiatives at council
WICKLOW County Council has launched a series of videos to help the public with accessibility arrangements for county buildings.
These videos are intended to assist people with learning difficulties, autism, physical disabilities, and or anxiety concerns in different elements encountered when visiting any of Wicklow County Council’s offices or the municipal district offices in Arklow, Baltinglass, Bray, Greystones and Wicklow.
Cllr Irene Winters, Cathaoirleach of Wicklow County Council, said: ‘This innovative project is testament to Wicklow County Council’s vision and commitment for greater quality customer service for all. I think these videos will be of great assistance to people with learning or physical disabilities who need to visit the different council offices.’
The initiative was part-funded under the Department of Rural and Community Development’s Digital Innovation Programme which supports local authority led projects that demonstrate clear potential for public benefit and that can be scaled up or replicated elsewhere.
‘This creative series of informative videos will greatly benefit the wider public and citizens of County Wicklow,’ said Frank Curran, Chief Executive, Wicklow County Council. He said the council plans to extend this project into buildings such as public libraries and recycling facilities. Available at wicklow. ie/living/AccessVideos
