An update about Your Voice Counts and Coronavirus (COVID-19)
At Your Voice Counts, the safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and the people we support continues to be our absolute priority. We are actively responding to advice from public health and are putting measures in place to play our role in combating Coronavirus.
As such, our offices are currently closed and we have cancelled or postponed face to face activities, including our drop-ins and regular group activities.
However, we continue to support the most vulnerable people in our communities and are doing so over the telephone or video calling as much as possible.
Statutory Advocacy services
Our advocates are now working from home, and systems are in place to allow advocates to work and consult remotely.
Community Services for people with learning disabilities
We are in the process of contacting those who come along to our drop-ins, group activities or self-advocacy groups, to make sure they have the support they need over the coming weeks. We are helping people to make plans, including how to get food, medication and how to use technology to stay connected.
If you know someone with a learning disability who you think may need our help, please support them to get in touch with us.
If you have any questions or concerns or want to stay in touch, you can contact us via telephone, email and social media using the details below. You can also contact your usual worker using their mobile number or email address.
Telephone: 0191 478 6472 (10am-4pm)
These are exceptional times and Your Voice Counts would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding and send our best wishes to our communities.
