Talk to us, not about us!
Dudley Voices for Choice are a user led charitable organisation that supports people with learning disabilities and autism to speak up for themselves.
Dudley Voices for Choice started over 10 years ago and in January 2014 became an independent charity. Our members wanted to have complete control over their organisation.
What do they offer?
Self advocacy for people with a learning disability and people with autism. We empower people with learning disabilities and/or autism to speak up for themselves and their peers. We promote community inclusion and actively participate in community meetings and strategic meetings with the council and health services around the borough. We support people to attend the meetings and take an active part in the meetings as we believe the voices of people with learning disabilities and/or autism should be heard.
We hold a forum the first Wednesday of every other month and we also take part in community groups around the borough.
We do not charge for the forum. We deliver training, make information easily accessible to all and trial services, reporting back our findings.
We support the Dudley Autism drop in at the Oakfield Centre – more details can be found by typing Autism drop in into the key words above.
We run the Safe Places scheme in the Dudley borough which now has over 100 Safe Places around the borough. You can find out where they are by typing Safe Places in the Key words box on the community information directory.
