ADVOCACY

“We get ideas and do campaigning together about our equal rights. We meet loads of different people with similar problems and get our voices heard out in public.”

Advocacy ensures vulnerable people receive the vital benefits and access to services they are entitled to; that they find somewhere safe to live; and that they can access their community, preventing social isolation. We work with people with learning difficulties, people with an acquired brain injury, people with a physical disability or sensory impairment, and people on the autistic spectrum.

Impact’s one-to-one Advocacy service stops people’s lives going into crisis and gives people the power to take control. Our advocates support people with their desire to be heard when no one else is listening. 

Impact Advocacy also supports Self-Advocacy groups for people with learning disabilities and autism. These groups are independent and work together to support one another; they campaign for their rights, raise awareness and produce reports for local authorities to ensure their services work for people with disabilities.

“I don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t gone to Stopover. It was the first place ever I could call home and feel safe, and that someone cared about whether I came home or not.”

Chloe, Ex-Stopover Resident

“I love coming to WASP; there is always loads to eat and we never get shouted at. We have to stick to the rules and, mostly, we do. Garry always asks me if I have done well at school today”
