Disability Act 2005


This Act was enacted in September 1st 2005 and includes a number of positive action measures designed to advance and underpin participation by people with disabilities in everyday life. In particular, Part 3 of the Act contains a number of obligations specifically related to public bodies, including Trinity College Dublin that are in effect since 31st December 2005.

The objective of Part 3 of the Disability Act 2005 (PDF) is to ensure that an integrated access to public buildings and services is available to people with and without disabilities. This means access to the public parts of public buildings, information and services provided by public bodies. This also includes services provided directly by Trinity College Dublin, services purchased and provided on our behalf, services supplied / provided to us and information provided by Trinity College Dublin. These aspects of Part 3 of the Disability Act 2005 (Sections 25,26,27,28 & 29) are in force since 31st December 2005.
