Disability Equality’s New Strategic Plan 2018-2021

Posted in DENW

Our organisation’s mission is to promote the removal of disabling barriers from society and further the human and civil rights of disabled people.

This mission has been translated into 5 strategic aims:

  1. To empower individual disabled people to achieve independent living and realise their full socio-economic potential in society;
  2. To facilitate volunteering and peer support opportunities for disabled people;
  3. To influence the community, statutory organisations, voluntary organisations and businesses to remove barriers for disabled people;
  4. To continually work to embed good practice in the organisation.
  5. To work strategically to end all forms of hate crime and oppression
