Welcome to the IDD web site

The institute follows the principle that "good design enables bad design disables".

In these pages we have assembled information that will help visitors to the site to understand how "Design for All" is a process for socially inclusive decision-making and removes the barriers that exclude people with disabilities, migrant workers and older people from taking an active part in ordinary life.

We are the Irish experts in "Design For All" and cover "universal design", "Darrier Free Design", and " "Inclusive Design. " in order to enable an understanding that these approaches emphasise the product that is created and do not deal with the design process

Achieving a more inclusive society is an equality issue and so we have provided information on the legal requirements that must be met. There is also information on the projects which IDD has carried out, the awards achieved and details of the political campaigns being pursued in the interest of defending the right of people with disabilities and others to be included in all aspects of society.

We would welcome your comments on the material presented in these pages.

 Design for All is an enabling process that can really make a difference
