Inclusion Ireland got funding from the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission for a project on the Public Sector Duty.
A steering committee of 6 people with intellectual disabilities was picked for the project. This committee helped plan and carry out the project.
The project comes with two booklets, a guide called What is the Public Sector Duty? and a checklist called Checking a Public Service for Accessibility.
