Who are we?

Clare Leader Forum is a peer support group for people with disabilities in County Clare. The group which was formed in 2014 have had meetings with both Finian McGrath minster for disabilities from 2016 to 2020, and Anne Rabbit, the current minster for disabilities. If you would like to contact Clare Leader Forum you can do so at clareleaderforum@gmail.com . The survey will run until 5th June 2021 and we will be publishing the results at the end of June.  

Objective of this survey

We are carrying out this survey to try and find out what barriers are in the way of people with disabilities enjoying a social life? Something that has been noticed among people with disabilities over time, has been how we seem to limit our leisure activities to what is close to home and available on our doorstep. Disabled people tend to choose what is accessible to them. My personal feeling on this is, expectations need to be raised on this and this can be done through engagement with those that matter. In my humble opinion there is a lot more to our wonderful country than what disabled people are willing to expect and therefore experience. We should be able to experience more of the beautiful landscape, culture and history of our locality and country.   

It seems that even day trips to other countries are extremely hard to arrange because of transport issues. Therefore, Clare Leader Forum intend to engage with those in the hospitality and transport sectors to see if we can improve this situation.
