Independent living is a philosophy, a way of looking at disability and society, and a worldwide movement of people with disabilities working for self-determination, self-respect and equal opportunities.
Cork Centre for Independent Living (Cork CIL) was opened in 1996 by people with disabilities. Cork CIL is committed to working towards the removal of barriers to inclusion and working for rights-based equality legislation for people with disabilities.
Our main aim is to empower and enable people with disabilities to achieve Independent Living, choice and control over their lives and to achieve full and active participation as equal citizens in society.Cork CIL at Strasbourg Freedom Drive 2011
