About Us

Your Voice Advocacy Project was originally called the West Glamorgan Forum and was set up in 1984 in response to a document produced by the Welsh Office entitled ‘All Wales Strategy for Learning Disability Services’.

This document set out new ways of working in the Learning Disability field. It recognised for the first time that people with learning disabilities had the right to ordinary patterns of life in the community and the right to be included in the decisions made which affected their lives.

As a result of the findings in this document, a group of parents of children and adults with learning disabilities came together and established the West Glamorgan Forum.
