About Equal Say

We have been providing advocacy in Glasgow City since 1995.  Equal Say is a registered charity and  receives funding from The Big Lottery Fund.  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.
