My time with EPEV has given me the confidence to take part in conversations about important issues for disabled and LGBTQ+ people in Wales. Disabled and LGBTQ+ voices are often overlooked in public life, but EPEV is a great opportunity to learn how you can make a real difference in your area of interest.  

I have had unforgettable experiences and met many inspiring people who are working towards positive changes for people in Wales. I was supported at every step by the EPEV staff to make the experience accessible to me as a disabled and non-binary person. 

I would encourage anyone who has a passion for helping people or wants to understand more about how to elevate marginalised voices in Wales to join the EPEV programme.
