Self Advocacy Voice

Self advocacy voice

Self advocacy gives people with learning disabilities the chance get their voice heard about important things that affect their lives.  We go and visit people to see what they think about services they use or other things that affect them.

We have spoken to people with learning disabilities about Day Care services, Hate Crime, Respite services, Transport services and about where people live.  We speak to people to find out what they like and what they don’t like about services and what they would like to change in their lives.

Once we have spoken to people and heard what they have to say, it is then our job to tell our local Learning Disability Partnership Board what we have found out from people and ask them what they can do to make things better for people.
