Your Say

Do you have a disability, long term health, mental health or age-related condition or do you support someone who does? If so, you probably need extra help to do day-to-day tasks and to take part in all those things that most people take for granted.

Your Say is an informal collaboration of social care service users. It’s an open, friendly consultation group which is run by it’s members.

The members of Your Say share these experiences and would be delighted if you were able to join our self-help group and help us all find better ways of living. Your involvement would add to our numbers and give us more authority to speak on behalf of people with support needs. This helps us when talking to the Council, politicians and Health Services about achieving better and more user-friendly services.

Each month we focus on a particular issue e.g. PIP Assessments, Changes to services, budget cuts. We also provide a safe and confidential space for members to raise and discuss their own issues. 

Your Say is chaired by Alan Benson and meets every month on the last Thursday afternoon of the month.  Meetings take place at the Ruils office. Email  or call 020 8831 6083 for more information. 

Action from the July meeting: Your Say members discussed the recent atrocities in Japan and agreed to write to the Japanese Ambassador to show solidarity. Read their letter here. If you a member of a disability group we urge you to do the same.
