National Day
of Local Action

  1. This year due to Covid - 19 we are moving the campaign online and having a virtual Make Way Day.
  2. This will be a virtual meeting where you can get involved with other disability and community groups in your county or city to work with the council to take action on access on Make Way Day.
  3. To generate the greatest impact for this national occasion it is intended to hold the event on Make Way Day Friday, 25th September at 11.00am all over Ireland.
  4. Use the map below to find the local coordinator for your area. Contact them to find out what’s happening locally and how you can get involved.
  5. Get ready to join in on Friday, September 25th.
  6. Take pictures of the obstacles you encounter (parked cars on footpaths, bikes chained to railings, sandwich boards and overhanging branches) and post your pictures to social media. Include #MakeWayDay20, tag @MakeWayDay and @disabilityfed in your post.
  7. Show your support by sharing and retweeting other people’s posts from the Make Way Day Facebook, Twitter and Instagram account and encourage friends and family to do the same. Use our MakeWayDay Twibbon.
