We recognise at Llamau that the young people and women we support have very powerful and important opinions and experiences to share but they often lack the confidence to use their voice to communicate them.

Step into Involvement centres around helping the people we support to amplify their voices, with a view to influencing areas such as policy change, their immediate environment and their own lives.

Through setting up focus groups, consultation events and house meetings across the services Llamau run, we involve young people and women in important decisions about the support services available to them. The Your Voice forum provides a platform for people to be listened to and be taken seriously.

The people we support are the real experts by experience, so ensuring they feel their voices and opinions are heard is a core objective to Llamau’s strategic plan.
