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.
