Welcome to Warrington Speak Up!

At Warrington Speak Up we believe in, and actively promote a society that is inclusive, celebrating who people are and valuing the contributions they make.

We believe that everyone, regardless of their situation, needs or disability, has a right to be heard and respected, to have choice, control and freedom over their lives and to be safe from discrimination, harm or abuse.

We treat all people as an individual, working hard to protect your rights and what matters most to you, taking time to understand and see things from your perspective and offer support that is right for you.

If an important decision is being made about your life, we will stand by you, give a voice, and make sure your views and wishes are heard.

Our aim is to help you make sense of your options, think about the consequences, make an informed decision, and have the confidence to express your views.

At Warrington Speak Up we believe that advocacy matters and makes a difference in people’s lives.

Our Passion

We believe in a voice for all, rights for all, equality for all and justice for all.

We are passionate about protecting rights and amplifying voices.
