Welcome to Warrington Speak Up!
At Warrington Speak Up we promote a society that is inclusive, celebrating who people are and valuing the contributions they make. We treat everyone as an individual, trying to see things from your perspective and offering 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. By understanding you as an individual, we work hard to protect your rights and what matters most to you.
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.
Advocacy may look different, but our passion and belief in a voice for all, rights for all, equality for all and justice for all remains as strong as ever.
Advocacy is free, independent, confidential and person led.

Advocacy delivery during Covid-19
Advocacy has never been more important. It is the people who already found it harder to have their voices heard, who have been disadvantaged the most from the coronavirus restrictions we have all faced.
Advocacy may look different, but our passion to provide support to those who most need it remains the same. All our team are working creatively to ensure we continue to provide quality advocacy services. Our aim is to help people stay connected, have their voice heard, rights upheld and to remain safe.
We are still accepting advocacy referrals, delivering project work and, where it is safe to do so, meeting people face to face. Protecting rights and amplifying voices is more important now than ever before.
