I joined Your Say about 7 years ago. originally to work in the office to support Your Says work with a self advocacy group. i soon started working directly with the group as a supporting Advocate with a team of Experts by Experience and then began to provide some 1:1 Advocacy support.
I found that i have a real passion for advocacy and making sure that people have their voices heard. i am now a fully qualified Advocate and work across the whole spectrum of advocacy support Your Say offers, including Care Act Advocacy, Advocacy with parents in child protection interventions, complex case work and act as a Pair RPR to many people subject to DoLS
More recently i have started to undertake some management responsibilities and deputise for Kirstie when she is not available
