NEED TO BE HEARD?


The first port of call if you need help to be heard; help to understand social services; or if you feel you're not getting the right support to stay independent.

We’ll help you get to the right social service, make sense of your options and understand your situation, having someone to speak for you, and to advocate on your behalf.

Contact Bridgend Voice & Choice.
