‘Independent Living enables us as disabled people to achieve our own goals and live our own lives in the way that we choose for ourselves’ (DW 2009)

 Disability Wales in partnership with Disability Powys and Dewis Centre for Independent Living invite disabled people & local organisations to attend a half day event to find out more about the Independent Living NOW! Campaign and how you can get involved.

The campaign was launched in Cardiff Bay on 28 April 2010 and will run through to March 2011. The campaign provides an opportunity for all disabled people in Wales to make their voices heard ahead of the next National Assembly Elections in May 2011. The campaign is calling for  the introduction of a National Strategy on Independent Living. An online petition has been started to support this on the National Assembly for Wales website. PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TODAY!!

 During the campaign we are gathering disabled people’s experiences of Independent Living – both good and bad. Do you have experiences that you would like to share? Whether it relates to housing, transport, personal assistance, community care, employment, aids & equipment, advocacy…we are keen to listen and utilise your experiences to influence change in Wales.
