We are a small charity with a big vision.
We want to remove the barriers that limit disabled islanders and inspire changes that create a more inclusive community – one where diversity is celebrated and everyone can contribute their unique skills and gifts.
We believe that it is the attitudes and structure of our society that makes someone disabled and not their physical or mental situation. If life is set up in a way that is accessible for people with disabilities then they can be independent with choice and control over their own lives – and everyone benefits.
Disability matters affect us all.
Our services help people with disabilities, their families, carers and professionals in Jersey.
Our team can provide all sorts of advice, support and information to assist you. Whether that’s information about local services, where to access support or who to speak to.
Wellbeing is a complex combination of a person’s physical, mental, emotional and social health and is strongly linked to happiness and life satisfaction.
Enable Voice brings people together to monitor, advocate, raise awareness, and to educate on issues and collaborates to help inform policy.
