Advocacy – Physical & Sensory impairments
Sometimes a physical disability can make it harder to get people to listen to you and take what you say seriously.
If you feel you already experience discrimination and exclusion due to your ethnic or cultural background, mental health issues, gender, sexuality or age, having a physical disability or sensory impairment can become another barrier to getting your voice heard on issues that matter to you.
We can support you to have your voice heard on a range of issues such as:
Sensory impairment is when one of your senses (sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste or spatial awareness) is no longer working normally. You do not need to have full loss of a sense to be sensory impaired.
Our specialist advocate is here to help and we have access to BSL signers for clients with hearing impairments. Our advocacy leaflet is also available in large print for those with a visual impairment.
