What we do
Disability Wales exists to champion the rights, equality and independence of all disabled people in Wales. As a membership organisation run by disabled people, we provide a strong voice and leadership to influence policy on the issues that matter to our members. Our member Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) cover all areas of Wales, campaigning on local issues and strengthening the work we do nationally. Wales has the highest proportion of disabled people in the UK, at 26%. We all have a huge task on our hands to tackle inequality and exclusion.
We are on a mission to empower disabled people and their organisations to create change locally, nationally and internationally.
