Position in organisation
What does your organisation do?
We are the lead Voice and Influence organisation in Bristol for Disabled people and their families. We are a Disabled people-led organisation campaigning for better disability equality in the city for all those that live, work or study here and ensuring Disabled people get a voice in all that affects them. We do this in a variety of ways, including:

- organising events where Disabled people get a say on changes in policy and service delivery and/or have an opportunity to hold decision-makers to account;
- ensuring Disabled people views are represented throughout the Council, and in all consultations;
- responding to local and national decision-making that affects our members;
- signposting people to services they need;
- lobbying to get the services for Disabled people that they need.

We also provide training, advice and consultancy to other organisations on all aspects of disability equality, access and inclusion.
