Access


We endeavour 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.

Under the Disability Act, all public bodies, subject to certain considerations provided for in the Act, are required to ensure that access to services is integrated and to provide assistance to people accessing services.  Services and goods supplied to all public bodies are required to be accessible and communications and information provided by public bodies must be accessible.  The Government also launched ‘A Code of Practice’ on Accessible Public Services.

Laois County Council has also appointed an Inquiry Officer, with responsibility for dealing with complaints made under Section 38 of the Disability Act 2005.
