Disability is defined as a physical, sensory, learning, mental health or emotional impairment that affects someone's ability to take part in normal day-to-day activities. You may have been born with a disability or you may have developed it at some point during your life.

There are around 400,000 people with disabilities in the Republic of Ireland; that's about 10% of the population.
