Two separate surveys ascertaining information on the experiences of persons with disabilities in Co Clare have been launched.
Clare Leader Forum in partnership with Clare Public Participation Network (PPN) launched two surveys last Friday. The documents have been circulated via email and can be obtained by interested parties who email either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Dermot Hayes of Clare Leader Forum explained that the first survey is to find out how choice for people with disabilities can be improved when visiting destinations in the county. The findings will be brought before stakeholders in the tourism sector.
Information on their experiences to establish “how people can get the best out of life” is the goal of the second survey, he added.
Both surveys are targeted at a population of 13.5% in Clare who according to the Central Statistics Office stated in the 2016 Census that they have a disability. “This is a sizeable chunk of the population,” the Corofin native remarked.
