Changes Needed For Wheelchair Users

Yesterday, the Irish Wheelchair Association submitted their Pre-Budget 2020 Submission to Leinster House, to call for more funding for transport, housing and personal assistant services for wheelchair users.

Someone who knows all to well about the necessary changes needed for wheelchair users is 25 year old Niamh Ni Ruari.

Due to a rare form of cancer, the mum of one found herself confined to a wheelchair at the age of 18.

With daily challenges arising including transport and access into buildings, Niamh, along with the Irish Wheelchair Association are calling for change.

Niamh joined us this morning to share her story, alongside the CEO of the Irish Wheelchair Association Rosemary Keogh.

Watch their full interview below.
