A National Day of Local Action

Make Way Day is back for 2020 with 29 local authorities taking part in this year’s virtual campaign.

This year we will not take to the streets due to Covid-19 but rather host a virtual meeting at 11 am on Friday 25th September where individuals and members of local disability and community groups will come together with their local authority in a virtual meeting to tell their story and highlight awareness for ‘Make Way Day’.

The objective is to build a digital ‘Make Way Day’ story to positively impact the lives of people with disabilities and to reflect a culture where people with disabilities are given optimum choice, control and respect.

We are inviting the community to take pictures of the obstacles encountered on our streets including badly parked vehicles, bicycles, sandwich boards and other ill-placed hazards. Most obstacles are a result of thoughtlessness and genuine lack of awareness.

We encourage you to post pictures on social media –  #MakeWayDay20

Show your support by sharing and re-tweeting posts and encourage friends and family to do the same.
