POhWER is a charity and membership organisation. We provide information, advice, support and advocacy to people who experience disability, vulnerability, distress and social exclusion.
POhWER was set up in 1996 by service users who, tired of others making assumptions about their capabilities and views, wanted equal access to information and a voice of their own.
POhWER's mission is:
"To empower people to have a voice and make a real difference to their lives"
Our role is:
"To enable our clients' voices to be heard, speaking for them when they can't and supporting them when they can."
