We hope you enjoyed seeing some of the widespread Halloween celebrations across IWA's centres as much as we did and we look forward to the next celebratory season, but we won't mention too much about that just yet.

October was a tough month for the whole of the IWA community due to the strike action which was due to take place on October 17th. We know that whilst the strike action was called off at the eleventh hour, much stress and concern had already spread. We want to sincerely thank you for the huge outpouring of support we received during those weeks. We would also like to thank those who came forward to bravely share their stories with the public. This collective power really helped to make a real impact and put pressure on the decision-makers to return to the table to discuss the issue of pay parity. Thank you!

Looking forward to this edition, Jamie from Kildare shares his experience with our Driving School and the impact it has had on his life. For those adventurers, we are delighted to share the opportunity to take part in IWA’s inclusive Abseil at Dalkey Quarry in Dublin which has been rescheduled for November 18th. On the Advocacy side of things, we invite you to have your say on our upcoming Transport Campaign so make sure to fill in our quick survey which is linked below. In Sport, the race is on for Paris as our athletes get ready to compete in the Para Powerlifting National Championships.
