Lucy Watts MBE at Total Voice Northamptonshire re-launch

At an event to re-launch our advocacy services in Northamptonshire, guest presenter Lucy Watts MBE spoke about her difficult, ongoing journey to get her rights upheld and receive the care package that she so desperately needs.

Advocacy has been key to this journey and she wants everyone to understand just how vital advocates are. Lucy’s experience is deeply humbling and there was a lot of blinking and veiled sniffs during her talk.

Delegates were then able to attend a selection of workshops including:

  • Introduction to BSL, from our partners Deafconnect,
  • What is advocacy and how can it support my work?
  • IMCA / DOLS & advocacy

And they also had the opportunity to have 1:1 appointments with advocates throughout the day.

We received positive feedback from many attendees and hope that the event is the start of several new and positive relationships.
