Can I use my mother's Disabled Person's Parking Permit if I'm doing an errand for her?
The disabled persons parking permit can only be used by the person to whom it is issued. The permit shows the name and photograph of the person it has been issued to and you cannot use it unless that person is with you. The permit allows the holder of the permit to use the public parking spaces that are specifically assigned for vehicles being used by a person with a disability. These spaces or parking bays have the wheelchair symbol painted on the ground or have a sign with the wheelchair symbol displayed. Most accessible parking bays are located near amenities such as shops and schools. Car parking spaces with the wheelchair symbol are usually wider that most other car parking spaces to enable drivers or passengers with a disability to get form their car seat to their wheelchair. A disabled person's parking permit is only issued to a person with a disability. The parking permit can be used by the person with the disability for any vehicle they are travelling in. This means that a person with a disability being driven at different times by different people can bring the parking permit and display it in whichever vehicle they are using. The disabled person's permit is administered by the disabled drivers association of Ireland (DDAI) and the Irish Wheelchair Association ( IWA). Both organisations provide details information on using the disabled person's permit.

I’m writing to you to let you know about the part time, online options for Disability Studies / Disability Equality Studies in St Angela’s college in Sligo. I would be very grateful if you would consider sharing this with anyone that you think might be interested – we particularly want to encourage applications from disabled people. The options may also appeal to people working for, or living with disabled people and those working in the disability sector who aren’t currently in a position to take on a full-time programme of education. Community development practitioners may also be interested in the options.
We have created several study options, all commence in September 2017;
Option 1 - Students wishing to ‘test the waters’ of third level education can opt to take one key Stand-alone Module, without committing to a programme with an academic award (http://www.stangelas.nuigalway.ie/departments/course_details.php?id=INT61&&ver=en)
Option 2 – Students wishing to gain an academic award, can enrol onto the Certificate in Disability Studies programme, which involves taking two modules of part-time study, the certificate can be completed within a year ( Certificate in Disability Studies).
Option 3 – We also offer students the opportunity to undertake the Bachelor of Arts in Disability Equality Studies; a four-year part-time programme of study. After successfully completing 2 years of study, students may choose to leave with a Diploma in Disability Equality Studies (BA (Disability Equality Studies) Programme ).
Hi all it is that time of year again!! Please pass the word around to all family and friends to take part.
The Annual Fun Run,Walk,Roll will be set off at 12.30 with participation medals awarded to everybody who takes part.
Refreshment will be available after the event.

Sing Together provides an uplifting social outing for anyone whether they are retired, living with a disability or simply enjoys a good old fashioned sing song with others.
Sarah Garden of Sing Together said, “Bringing the community together through the medium of song is what Sing Together is all about. Singing has been scientifically proven to lift the mind and energise the body. Everyone has a voice and singing truly inclusive activity bringing joy to everyone who participates. At this event new friendships were formed as result of Singing Together.’
