Speak Up Be Heard
Speak Up Be Heard is a pioneering group for people we support which enables them to have their voice heard with advocacy support from Together All Are Able. The group gives people we support an active role in improving Day Services.
Please see below for the group papers (Agendas and Minutes), the group's Terms of Reference and information about Self Advocacy.

The group has had a key role within Day Services and has been active in a number of co-production projects within Wirral Evolutions. You can read more about the impact of the group in the report below.
