About Disability Wales / Anabledd Cymru

Disability Wales / Anabledd Cymru is the national association of disabled people’s organisations in Wales striving to achieve the rights and equality of all disabled people.

Our aims are to:

Influence policy and decision makers at all levels, through acting as an effective advocate for the views, priorities and interests of our members

· Develop and support the work of organisations managed and controlled by disabled people

· Lead and develop an effective, sustainable organisation and ensure sound and robust governance

Values

· The Social Model of Disability

· Equality, Diversity and Human Rights

· An Inclusive Society

· Self-determination

· Beacon of best practice

DW is a policy influencing organisation and receives an Equality and Inclusion Grant from Welsh Government to represent the interests of disabled people in developing government policy. It worked with Welsh Government and other stakeholders in developing the Framework for Action on Disability: the Right to Independent Living (2019). The Framework is a cross-cutting approach to tackling the range of societal barriers faced by disabled people including in education, employment, transport and housing.

DW was closely involved with the coproduction of the report commissioned by the then Deputy Minister and Chief Whip: Locked-out – Liberating the lives and rights of disabled people beyond Covid-19 (2021). In response to the findings and recommendations in the report, the First Minister established the Disability Rights Taskforce which will produce an Action Plan aimed at embedding the Social Model of Disability in Welsh policy and tackling the issues identified in Locked-out. DW is actively involved in the Taskforce and secured the contract to deliver Social Model training to all Taskforce and Working Group members.

DW receives funding from other sources such as the National Lottery Community Fund to deliver specific projects and was awarded a Third Sector Resilience Grant from WCVA to develop its Training and Consultancy Service.

As an umbrella body DW provides support to its members – grassroots Disabled People’s Organisations - through training and development programmes as well as provision of information and resources. In addition to its website, DW has an extensive reach via various social media platforms including Facebook, twitter and You Tube.

Social Model of Disability

Disability Wales promotes the adoption and implementation of the Social Model of Disability throughout its work. All contractors are required to work within this model when delivering projects or services on our behalf.

The Social Model of Disability was developed by disabled people and makes the important difference between ‘impairment’ and ‘disability’, defined as follows:

Impairment: An injury, illness, congenital condition or neurodivergence that causes or is likely to cause a long-term effect on physical appearance and / or limitation of function within the individual that differs from the commonplace.

Disability: The loss or limitation of opportunities to take part in society on an equitable level with others due to social and environmental barriers.

Disability is defined as being caused by ‘barriers’ or elements of social organisation which take no or little account of people who have impairments. Society is seen to disable people who have impairments because the way it has been set up prevents us from taking part in everyday life. It follows that if disabled people are to be able to join in mainstream society, then the way society is organised must be changed.

Removing the barriers which exclude (and disable) people who have impairments can bring about this change. There are three main types of barrier facing disabled people:

Environmental barriers: lack of access in and around the built environment including transport systems

Attitudinal barriers: where disabled people are regarded as inferior, helpless, weak and vulnerable

Institutional barriers: policies and procedures that prevent the full participation of disabled people within education, the work place and the wider community

Disability Wales campaigns to remove all disabling barriers in Wales whether environmental, attitudinal or institutional.

About Disability Wales Training and Consultancy Services

Disability Wales is Wales’ Disability Expert. As a national Disabled People’s Organisation and employer of disabled people, we have a wealth of expertise in how to reach and engage with disabled people as well as in recruitment of disabled people and creating an inclusive workplace.

Disability Wales provides this expertise in numerous ways, from hosting workshops and focus groups, designing surveys and producing reports providing a bespoke consultancy service as well as delivery of full training courses such as:

• Introduction to Disability Rights and Equality

• Knowing Your Rights as a Disabled Person

• How to be an Inclusive Organisation – Accessible Policy in Practice

• Engagement with Disabled People

• Disability Equality and Employment of Disabled People

• Disability Equality and Living Life Independently

DW’s clients for its training and consultancy services include Welsh Government, local government and other public sector bodies, as well as national and local third sector organisations.

Training & Consultancy Objectives:

The objective of our training and consultancy services is to improve the rights and equality of disabled people, through educating people, services and workplaces on their rights and the Social Model of Disability. Previously, our services have responded to demand such as replying to direct training requests from external stakeholders.

Disability Wales would like to expand their training and consultancy to reach out to a wider range of organisations and services to better reach their aims. To improve the reach of their services and stimulate new business, Disability Wales need to enact a future development plan through working with a consultant.

The development of the Training and Consultancy Service will also contribute to the sustainability of DW through the diversification of income streams.

Staff Structure

The development of Disability Wales’s training and consultancy services are overseen by the Project Officer employed by Disability Wales and supported by the Disability Wales Policy and Programmes Manager and Disability Equalities Officer.

For further information specifically on the project, contact Leandra Craine, DW’s Training and Consultancy Project Officer via email at Leandra.craine@disabilitywales.org
