dc.description.abstract People with disabilities who become victims of crime have derived some benefits from the broader inclusionary momentum in relation to victims in the legal field in Ireland. In addition, there have been some benefits from legislation specifically targeted at supporting people with disabilities. The requirements on public service providers imposed by the Disability Act 2005, for example, have led to improved access to courthouses and Garda stations, through wheelchair ramps, the introduction of induction loop systems (a system comprising of a loop of cable around a designated area, usually a room or a building, which generates a magnetic field picked up by a hearing aid), and the provision of information in accessible formats. en_US
