Voice and InfluenceWe support the empowerment of people who face disadvantage.
The Voice & Influence Team works with disabled people, carers, older people and others who use a variety of health, housing and care services. We aim to encourage inclusion and combat disadvantage, bridging the gap between people and service planners.
We support the empowerment of people who face disadvantage, so that they can take a role in influencing services they require and that contribute to their wellbeing, rather than receiving help which may or may not meet their particular needs.
We believe that community development activities can have positive impacts on physical and mental health by reducing isolation, improving well-being and helping to develop and improve services.
