Laois County Council endeavours to provide clean, accessible public offices that ensure privacy, comply with occupational and safety standards and facilitate access for people with disabilities and special needs.

Under the Disability Act, all public bodies, subject to certain considerations provided for in the Act, are required to ensure that access to services is integrated and to provide assistance to people accessing services.  Services and goods supplied to all public bodies are required to be accessible and communications and information provided by public bodies must be accessible.  The Government also launched ‘A Code of Practice’ on Accessible Public Services.
