Welcome to Disability Wales
Welcome to Disability Wales on-line – your first port of call for information, comment, opinion and opportunities for getting involved in campaigning for disability equality.
Disability Wales is the national association of disabled people's organisations, striving to achieve the rights, equality and independence of disabled people in Wales.
We work to the Social Model of Disability, recognising that people are disabled more by poor design, inaccessible services and other people's attitudes than by their impairment. This guides our work in promoting and campaigning for Independent Living.
Our aims are to:
- develop and support the work of organisations led by disabled people
- be an effective advocate for the views, priorities and interests of our Members
- influence policy and decision makers at all levels
- develop and deliver services that benefit disabled people.
This is a growing, regularly updated site. Please contact us if you have any comments or ideas. Your input will be welcomed.
