Having a Voice
The DSA runs a project called Having a Voice.
We have a booklet in Easy Read with more information. You can download it here.
What is Having a Voice?
Having a Voice is about helping you have your say. Having your say means being asked about what matters to you and other people listening to you.
Why should I have my say?
Having Your Say can help you in lots of ways. It can help you feel good about yourself. It can help you make choices. It can make you feel more confident. It can help you change things.
How can I have my say?
We have a magazine for and by people with Down’s syndrome called Down2Earth magazine. You can send things in for the magazine. You can send in articles, photos, pictures, recipes and lots more. Find out how to send something to the magazine: Down2Earth Magazine.
Having a Voice groups
You can join a Having a Voice group. A Having a Voice group is a group of people with Down’s syndrome who meet together to have their say.
We have Having a Voice groups in London and the South West. But we want to have more in different parts of the country. Find out more about Having a Voice groups.
