Centre for Excellence in Universal Design (CEUD)


The National Disability Authority (NDA) is the independent statutory body that provides information and advice to the Government on policy and practice relevant to the lives of persons with disabilities. We work through our Centre for Excellence in Universal Design (CEUD) to promote Universal Design of the built environment, products, services and information and communication technologies.

A Universal Design approach involves a diverse range of users in the design process from an early stage. If an environment is accessible, usable, convenient and a pleasure to use, everyone benefits. By considering the diverse needs and abilities of all throughout the design process, universal design creates digital and built environments, services and systems that meet peoples’ needs. Simply put, universal design is good design.

At the Centre we work to develop guidelines based on international best practice, and contribute to National and European standards as well as highlighting good practice in relation to Universal Design. We also engage with a wide range of professional bodies to build awareness of Universal Design in Education (UDE) across the education system and through continuous professional development.
