Your Voice Counts is a charity that supports people with learning disabilities, autistic people and people who are at risk of exclusion due to disability, illness or other challenges. We help people to be connected, to have choice and control in their lives, and to speak up for what they want and need.

We believe in listening to and empowering people with different needs and abilities to bring about positive change.  Experts by Experience are at the heart of our organisation and guide everything we do.

This year has been a tough one, especially for charities like us who support some of the most vulnerable people in our community. That's why we're asking for your help to make this festive season a merry one for everyone!

We're raising funds from now until Christmas day to help people who need our support the most this winter. What better way to get involved than by sharing pictures of your wonderful pets looking their most festive! Find out more and donate here.
