Brighton & Hove Speak out

Charity offering independent advocacy for adults with learning disabilities in Brighton & Hove

Our advocacy and community services are for people with learning disabilities aged 18 or over. We can support you to have your voice heard, and make choices about your life.

Advocacy is...

  • Supporting people to tell others what they need and want
  • Supporting people to make choices and take control of their life
  • Supporting people to understand and uphold their rights

We offer several different kinds of one-to-one advocacy, including a drop-in.

We also run several self-advocacy groups that meet up regularly. Members support each other to speak up and take action about things that are important to them.

How to access this service

Get in touch if you'd like support. You can call us, email us, or fill out a form on our website.

Or you can ask someone who supports you to refer you to us, for example your GP or social worker.
