What do we do?
TheFDF Centre for Independent Living( formerly Flintshire Disability Forum) has been supporting disabled people of all ages for more than 20 years, in 2017 we became a Centre for Independent Living only the second CIL in Wales (the other is in Pontypridd) recognised by the Welsh Government and Disability Wales.
On a day to day basis we support disabled people to live independently, that is to live where they want, with whom they want and how they want. That does not mean living on your own it means being able to make an informed decision to live your own life being fully included in all aspects of your local community that is leisure, employment, education, health, social activities, transport, finance, equipment, advice, and information.
So what does this mean in practice? We will provide for you or your carers:
