Empower You works with communities to support disabled people to lead healthy, active lifestyles.
It does so by working with local disabled people to identify activities of interest, sources these locally and makes them accessible.
Empower You offers support for people to access the activity, working to build confidence, establish a routine of engagement and support the relationship between people and provider.
In doing so, Empower You creates integrated, inclusive communities in which disabled people have the opportunities, and knowledgeable support in place, to lead healthy, active lives.
Health and wellbeing
75% of disabled people see improvements to health and wellbeing
62% of disabled people are still active independent of Empower You
85% of activity providers feel better equipped to work with disabled people
Without a project such as Empower You many people would never be able to take those first steps.
