West of England Centre for Independent Living (WECIL) is based in Bristol.  It is an organisation of disabled people working together to enable choice, delivering high quality support and advice.  R4C evaluated their Lottery-funded Peer Support project, identifying the unique factors that make this service so successful.  Skilled staff and empowered service users work together to really change lives.  The evaluation included stakeholder interviews, a comprehensive report, an internal learning workshop and funding advice.  R4C has since been invited to present the main findings at WECIL’s AGM.
