Experts by Experience

A voice for disabled people in the local area

Our Experts by Experience project, funded by the Department of Health, is dedicated to providing a voice for disabled people. WECIL’s experts have been involved in giving their voice in Bristol NHS wheelchair budgets group, worked with Healthwatch to feedback on disabled people’s experiences of GP provision in Bristol and inputted into the DWP’s Work, Health & Disability Green Paper. Our experts have also used their lived experience of disability to produce self-help videos which give advice about how to apply for disabled people’s benefits. You can view the videos on WECIL’s YouTube channel.

Additionally, our Experts are meeting as part of a regular panel to consult with local business and healthcare providers to give feedback about how they are doing on accessibility and disability equality. We are looking to increase the number of panel members to provide as strong a voice as possible for disabled people in Bristol and the surrounding areas. The panel meets once every 6 weeks from 1800-2000 in Fishponds. We can cover your travel expenses to get there and food is provided. If you are interested in joining our Experts, or want to know more then please contact Hannah, our volunteer team leader.
