We have been providing advocacy around Glasgow and the West of Scotland since 1995. Equal Say is a registered charity and receives funding from The Big Lottery Fund and North Lanarkshire Council. All our services are free to the people who use them because of our grant funding from our supporters.
We are an independent organisation with our own Board of Management. Our independence means we are loyal only to the people we represent and we strive to be as free as we can from any conflicts of interest.
We cover Glasgow City’s boundaries and can work with any parent with a learning disability in the city. Many of the parents we work with have contact with Children and Families Teams at Social Work and children may be subject to Child Protection procedures,
In North Lanarkshire Council area we work with adults aged 18 to under 65 who have learning disabilities or mental ill health. Our advocacy partners often have contact with either Health or Social Work Services and/or are subject to Social Policy legislation such as the Mental Health Act, The Adult Support and Protection Act or the Adults with Incapacity Act.
