Cambridgeshire and Peterborough
From October 10th 2016, VoiceAbility, together with Cambridgeshire Deaf Association and NYAS are providing a new range of services in the area called ‘Total Voice’. You can find a summary about each, and links to more details below.
Your advocate will support you to:
- Talk about your situation
- Identify what you want to happen
- Make a plan and work towards it
Everyone who contacts the Total Voice Advocacy Helpline can talk to us about what advocacy services are available to you. We will work hard to ensure you get information and the right support from advocates to meet your needs. People who are not eligible will be assisted to make contact with relevant local support services.

Total Voice is the collective name for a range of advocacy and community services. By offering lots of different options, it means that you can contact the service and be supported straight away to find the right service for you. Because we make it so easy to get the right service, we know that more people will get the support they need to make positive changes to their lives. And fewer people will be alone when making major decisions about their care and support.
Peer support is available to you if you have a mental health illness and live in Cambridgeshire or Peterborough. A peer advocate is a trained volunteer who has similar experiences to you and so can understand the situation you are in. Peer advocates support you to have a voice about the issues that matter to you.
