General information

Service offered: The aim of Dewis Centre for Independent Living’s services is to create greater opportunities for disabled people to develop their own independence and to benefit from wider social inclusion. Dewis C.I.L. offers and provides services to disabled people which we believe will enhance ‘choice’ and ‘control’ in their lives. Our desire is that our services respond to disabled people’s needs and take into account their opinions of these services. Dewis C.I.L.’s prime function has been to support disabled people who wish to take greater control over their community care needs and to ensure that their voice is heard. We continue to carry out this function by operating a Direct Payments Support Scheme and Independent Professional Advocacy service. Direct Payments works in partnership with the various service teams from each Authority, whilst the Advocacy service is contracted by various local authorities but remains independent.

Target group: Disabled People

Area served: Rhondda Cynon Taf, Vale of Glamorgan, Cardiff, Newport, Pembrokeshire, Conwy, Denbighshire, Powys, Aneurin Bevan Health Board and authorities in Gwent.
