About Citizen Directed Co-operatives Cymru (CDCC) Project

CDCC is an innovative project delivered in partnership between Disability Wales and Wales Co-operative Centre and is funded by Big Lottery Fund’s BIG Innovation fund until March 2018.

The project will support greater voice, choice and control for disabled people through the development of citizen directed co-operatives as a new way to manage Direct Payments.

This blog will explore the rationale behind setting up a Citizen Directed Co-operative and also provide an introduction to what we mean by direct payment and a Citizen Directed Co-operative.
