Making your voice heard

If you have any issues, it’s very important to make sure your voice is heard by the right people, otherwise nothing will change.

This might include using an Advocate at your annual review or joining a peer campaign group like Rutland Disabled Youth Forum.  If you would like to talk to someone about getting an advocate please call the freephone number 0800 0129 112. 

You can either:

  • Click the 'view all services' button to see all services that offer support to get your voice heard.
  • Type what you are looking for in the 'keywords' box to search for services.


Advocacy is when someone who is qualified and trusted by you supports you to get your voice heard. They are your advocate.

Advocacy can be helpful if you need to start, change or stop something in your life. It’s really important that your voice is heard and you understand your rights, so you have more choices and control in your life.

You can find out more on our 'What Is Advocacy?' page.

Rutland Disabled Youth Forum

The Rutland Disabled Youth Forum is a group of young people aged 14-25 with a variety of disabilities.

They make sure their voices are heard about the services, facilities and accessibility in and around Rutland by feeding back to the relevant organisation.
