WECIL (West of England Centre for Inclusive Living) are a user-led disabled persons organisation who work across the West of England to create an inclusive society. Sense are a national disability charity that supports people with complex communication needs to be understood, connected and valued. They began, and continue, to support people who are deafblind but also support a wide range of people with complex communication needs.

These two will be joining forced to create an accessible haven for young disabled people and young people with learning difficulties in Millennium Square. The space will host a variety of workshops from 11am on Saturday and Sunday.
