A year-long project to make Somerset more accessible for Disabled people was launched on 1 April 2023.

Accessible Somerset is an ambitious project which will ask Disabled people how their life could be improved in various areas. The project is seeking volunteers to share their views and is asking for individuals and organisations to get involved by contacting Disability.Inc@wecil.org.uk.

To deliver this project, Somerset Council has teamed up with WECIL Ltd – a Disabled People’s Organisation who offer a range of services which support independent living. WECIL have been working with both public and private sector organisations since 2016, supporting senior management teams, HR professionals and Equality Diversity and Inclusion officers to create accessible, inclusive environments.

If you would like to be involved in the project, please contact Kinny Chinangwa or Alison Browning at Disability.Inc@wecil.org.uk

Don’t forget we also have information about accessible Somerset on the Local Offer, where you can find a whole host of accessible activities in Somerset. Read more at The Local Offer: Accessible Somerset.
