At the end of 2013 DWA commissioned a piece of research to take a snapshot of how the Wales Africa sector was managing in terms of disability inclusion and engagement. This report was published in February 2014 and is being used as a base to develop further activities. Many Links indicated their interest in receiving networking and training support, regarding disability issues. Others were aware of their obligations to include disabled people within their work but identified problems regarding execution. Whilst the report was a sample of a small sector and demonstrated a number of expected preconceived ideas concerning disability in Africa, it did show that there was some effort being made by a number of more established Links.

We have also created an Impact report which outlines DWA’s contribution to the Wales Africa sector, and beyond, since 2010. The report also looks at the sector’s increasing disability awareness, which we are delighted to have played a key role in.
