Disability Wales influences policy development at local, national and international level on various policy initiatives, which affect the lives of disabled people for example, employment & skills; health & social care; transport; housing and more.
As well as external policy work Disability Wales produces policies on specific issues. These outline the organisations views on a specific subject matter and further demands for equality. All internal policies are written in consultation with our members and agreed at AGM.
