My Voice My Choice
What is My Voice My Choice?
Our My Voice My Choice programme is designed to develop your campaigning and advocacy skills so you’ll be able to make a difference in your local community. We’re running free workshops across Wales.
How does it work?
We run three workshops in each of our 12 locations in Wales for disabled people and their allies. Each session will cover a wide range of issues such as hate crime, social inclusion, health and wellbeing - whatever the issues are, we’ll tackle them together.
Afterwards, you’ll have the opportunity to network with local politicians and campaigners during our celebration event.
You’ll also be able to keep making an impact long after the programme has finished. We’ll help you and other passionate disability campaigners form a citizen panel where you can continue to provide a voice for disabled people in your community.
What locations do you work in?
Here’s where you can get involved:
- Wrexham and Flintshire
- Bridgend/Neath/Port Talbot and the Vale
- Anglesey and Conwy
- Aberystwyth and Machynlleth
- Newport and Caerphilly
- Welshpool, Llandrindod Wells and Newtown
- Brecon and Merthyr
- Pontypridd (Caerphilly) and Rhondda Cynon Taff
- Blaenau Gwent, Ebbw Vale and Torfaen
As a disabled person myself, the sessions put on by Leonard Cheshire were vital. Helping to make sure a disabled person knows how to and where to report a hate crime and the importance of fitness is vital and I applaud Leonard Cheshire for the work they are doing.
All community sessions and workshops will ensure the safety of everyone involved, taking extra precautions with coronavirus safety arrangements. For more information and guidance on how you can attend the workshops safely, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
