VoiceAbility supports people who face disadvantage or discrimination to have a voice that counts.
VoiceAbility has led work to ensure that people are supported to have control over their lives. They have pioneered new ways of enabling people to be heard and have rights, ranging from the creation of local Parliaments run by people with learning disabilities to new statutory services supporting people with the highest support needs facing the most critical decisions. They have developed excellent services and as a result have become one of the largest advocacy providers in the UK.
VoiceAbility continue to develop their services to respond to the requirements of people with whom they work alongside, ensuring that they find the best way to ensure that people have control of their lives in a rapidly changing world.
VoiceAbility has drawn together a leading team of experts and professionals to run and manage the organisation. They are a User Led Organisation (ULO). This means that the majority of people on their Board of Trustees (their management committee) have experience of disability themselves.
VoiceAbility is recognised for its outstanding advocacy and service user involvement groups, which are offered in many local authorities across England.
They offer a wide range of services for those who have Mental Health needs, Learning disabilities, Dementia, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Physical Disabilities, Sensory and Communication Impairments, Substance Misuse Issues, Acquired Brain Injury, a serious physical illness or a Dual Diagnosis.
They also work with Looked After Children, Young People, Adults, Older People, Carers, Parents, Families and people in the criminal justice system.
