About
Name Your Voice Wakefield Advocacy Project
Sector Advocacy
Service Description Your Voice Wakefield Advocacy project provides different types of support to adults with learning disabilities living in the Wakefield area. This includes advocacy, supporting service users representatives at Partnership Board meetings and one to one support for crisis situations such as housing, benefits, employment, sexuality,social care, relationship, education etc... The work is undertaken by professional trained advocates and tailored around the service users' needs. Volunteering opportunities are available and full training is provided. The project also supports a Citizen Advocacy Scheme where volunteers provide advocacy support predominantly on a long term basis, but also on crisis situations according to the volunteer's availability. Finally the project is setting up a Self-Advocacy Forum which will cover the whole district and will give to people the opportunity to speak up for themselves with the support of their fellow peers.
