Our story

County Wicklow Public Participation Network (PPN) was formed in July 2014. Since then, Co Wicklow PPN has worked towards branding itself, developing transparent structures and procedures, providing community information, supporting member groups, representing the community on various committees, and raising awareness of the PPN itself.

County Wicklow PPN is a non-party political and non-sectarian representative organisation that acts as a voice for all community and voluntary organisations in County Wicklow.

The PPN’s purpose is to provide an inclusive and independent structure that enables community consultation and participation in policy and decision making so as to improve the quality of life and opportunities for people in the county.

Think Housing Build Accessible National Campaign

The Irish Wheelchair Association campaign is highlighting the absence of wheelchair accessible homes to rent or buy in Ireland and is calling on the government to review the building regulations and increase wheelchair accessibility standards from visitable to liveable. Currently the regulations only require new dwellings to be wheelchair visitable and not liveable, therefore the lack of availability of wheelchair liveable housing to rent or buy in every county.

Irish Wheelchair Association is calling for a review of the Building regulations (Part M Access and User) to address the severe shortage of wheelchair accessible houses available to rent or buy in public and private market, leaving thousands of people with disabilities with no choice other than to live in unsuitable settings like nursing homes or with aging parents.

Please support Irish Wheelchair Association’s Think Housing Build Accessible national campaign, calling for a review of the Part M 2010 (Section 3 Access & Use) of the Building Regulations, by signing its online petition at
