We are an independent charity providing advocacy mainly for people with learning disabilities. We help people develop self-advocacy skills and support peer advocates in campaigning for change. Our work enables people to have more control over their lives and to make the changes that they wish to.
Safe Places in Your Solihull Magazine
Safe Places is an important project that has recently been launched in both Solihull town centre as well as in Chelmsley Wood and we are delighted that the hard work of our Safe Places champions, supported by our staff, has been highlighted in the Spring 2018 edition of Your Solihull magazine. You can download the magazine here.
Awards for All
We are very happy to have been awarded a grant from BIG Lottery Awards for All to expand our Peer Visitor service. The grant will complement our existing work with SMBC and enable us to provide the service to clients who are resident in non-council care homes. We are very grateful to BIG Lottery for supporting this work that was inspired by our Service User Advisory Board.
A BIG THANK YOU to the Co-Op Local Community Fund!
Earlier this year we were delighted to be chosen as one of the 3 charities for the Local Community Fund at the Co-Op at Monkspath. Co-Op members have raised an amazing £1,592.12 for our AdvoActs drama group for people with learning disabilities and we want to say a big thank you to Co-Op and to all the members who supported us over the last 6 months.
