Your Voice Advocacy Project
The team at the Your Voice Advocacy Project offer support to those with a range of learning disabilities, providing assistance to anyone across the areas of Neath Port Talbot and Swansea by ensuring their voices are heard.
The need to social-distance during the pandemic created a lot of uncertainty for members so the team took immediate action to move their vital support online, assisted by some brilliant young volunteers. In doing so, they were able to maintain their members’ confidence and work hard to provide additional ‘Chit and Chat’ meetings to make sure everyone felt connected.
A grant from the NET Coronavirus Appeal through Community Foundation Wales has enabled Your Voice Advocacy Project to continue their vital work from a safe social distance, including circulating a regular member newsletter and creating engaging activity packs for members.
