You can make a difference


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.

POhWER support people to have a voice, to achieve empowerment and self-help so they win respect, uphold their rights and get their essential needs met. We focus on the most excluded members of society, so they are listened to when decisions are being made about them or the services that they need.

POhWER was established in 1996 by a group of people with disabilities who were fighting social injustice and challenges in their lives.

POhWER still operates with these roots at the heart of everything it does; supporting marginalised, vulnerable and socially excluded people through its charitable work.
