Every single person who uses our services, volunteers their time or supports any of WECIL’s work is a member of the WECIL Community. At WECIL we believe that communities are stronger when everyone is involved, which is why The Social Model of Disability is at the core of everything we do.
What are you looking for?
WECIL is an award winning, user led organisation supporting Disabled people to live the life they choose.
We are listeners, here to help you live the life you choose.
Whatever your enquiry, our team of Navigators can signpost and give you support to access the right services for you. We understand that knowing where or how to begin accessing support can be confusing, and some language and policies are complicated – we work closely with Disabled people to feel supported with what matters to them, and do our best to find practical and realistic solutions.
Advice & Support
Are you unsure what financial support you’re entitled to as Disabled person and how to access it?
We provide specialist Disability related benefits advice for Bristol and surrounding areas, and support users to apply for these welfare benefits which include Employment Support Allowance (ESA), Personal Independence Payment (PIP), Disability Living Allowance for Children (DLA), and Attendance Allowance (AA). We offer telephone advice and help with filling out forms and completing applications.
We can also partner with agencies across Bristol, and can signpost you towards these for advice in areas WECIL are unable to help you with.
