Welcome to POhWER

We help people who, because of disability, illness, social exclusion and other challenges, find it difficult to express their views or get the support they need.

Our mission is to empower people to have a voice and make a real difference to their lives. We do this by speaking for them when they can't and supporting them to speak for themselves when they can.

We are a charity and the advocacy, information and advice services we provide are free, independent and confidential.
