Welsh Government to fund ‘Enabling Wales’ project

Disability Wales

Just before Christmas Disability Wales learnt from the Welsh Government that our bid for Equality and Inclusion Grant funding of £318,506 has been successful.

Over the next three years our project, called Enabling Wales, will provide a programme of training, coaching and consultancy to:

• develop young disabled people as future leaders;

• strengthen existing Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) so that they represent the voice of disabled people more effectively;

• provide support for establishing new DPOs in parts of Wales where disabled people are under-represented; and

• support the development of two new Centres for Independent Living (CILs) as social enterprises.

Enabling Wales is a partnership between Disability Wales, Wales Co-operative Centre and Dewis CIL. It will draw upon each organisation’s specialised knowledge and expertise to provide disabled people aged 16+ with a unique learning opportunity.

Announcing the awards, Jeff Cuthbert AM, the Minister for Communities and Tackling Poverty, said:

“It is very positive that Disability Wales will be supporting the development of Centres for Independent Living.”

We are very much looking forward to developing Enabling Wales – which builds on the Framework for Action on Independent Living – and will keep you informed as we progress the project.
