Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) has gone on to become an important provider of quality services to people with limited mobility throughout the country. Today, our association is made up of a vibrant network of 20,000 members and 2,300 staff, as well as many dedicated volunteers.

Welcome to iwa.ie

IWA strives for excellence in all its activities and is a driving force for change, development and enhancements in the quality of life of people with disabilities in Ireland.

Why Join IWA?

IWA’s strength is in its people of all ages and many different types of disability. We encourage you to become actively involved in our association.

Support IWA

Fundraising is of vital importance to IWA. The money you and others give enables IWA to provide essential services to people with disabilities in every county in Ireland.


IWA welcomes volunteers who are available on a regular, one-off or intermittent basis. Further information is available if you click Get Involved below.

Member Services

IWA has been providing services to people with limited mobility since 1960. Our wide range of services promotes quality of life for people with disabilities in Ireland.

Notice to IWA Staff members

In conjunction with a major update to the IWA public website, we will soon be changing the way you log into the Staff Intranet, email and People Planner.

Shortly, you will no longer be able to access these facilities using the IWA website, instead you must use https://www.iwaonline.ie.

As always you can contact IT through email, it@iwa.ie, if you have any queries.
