Make Way Day

This event has ended

Nationwide, Friday 30th September

“Make Way Day” is a campaign that brings the disability and wider community together to consider the needs of people with disabilities in the public spaces we all share.

It is led by the Disability Federation of Ireland and is a unique collaboration across Ireland and the voluntary and local government sectors. But most of all it’s about people with disabilities.

But everyone can get involved. And everyone should get involved because we’ve discovered thoughtlessness is the big issue. We’ve compiled a terrible top three of obstacles that stop people with disabilities in their tracks.

  • Cars parked on footpaths
  • Bicycles illegally parked
  • Bins left on footpaths

The revolution starts with you!
Most people are unaware of the problems this behavior causes and we’ve found a friendly reminder is enough to get most people to change.

‘Make Way Day’ is not about pointing the finger at local authorities, other agencies, or randomly scattered activism. The whole point of the day is making the public aware of an issue that is fully within their power to change. It’s about One impactful, coordinated and decisive day of action.

Leading the charge are people with disabilities, local authorities, and disability organisations armed with an online tool that was specifically designed for Make Way Day. “Hey, this blocks my way!” is our message.
