Mission Statement

Dewis Centre for Independent Living is a voluntary organisation of disabled people and non-disabled people. The Organisation recognises ‘choice’ as a fundamental human right. We believe that through informed choices disabled people can gain greater independence and control over their lives. The Organisation is dedicated to providing services which support and respond to disabled people’s desire to have choice in their lives.

Aims and Objectives

  • To provide a wide range of services to disabled people:
  • who wish to take greater control over their community care needs
  • which enhance ‘choice’ and ‘control’ in their lives and promote independence
  • which respond to disabled people’s needs and take into account their opinions of these services.
  1. To provide disabled people, their families, their advocates and their supporters with useful, practical and accessible information on independent living.
  2. To supply disabled people, their families, their advocates and their supporters with a comprehensive support scheme which will enable the employment of personal assistants
  3. To create greater opportunities for disabled people to develop their own independence and to benefit from wider social inclusion.
  4. To recruit, develop and train volunteers and others in furtherance of these aims.
  5. To continue to develop its services for and with the co-operation and views of disabled people in accordance with Dewis C.I.L.’s beliefs.
