Who are Total Voice Lincolnshire

Total Voice Lincolnshire is a partnership of 3 different organisations. Each organisation works collaboratively to offer different advocacy, information and advice services across Lincolnshire within a single partnership framework.

Meet the partners:

VoiceAbility is an advocacy charity that supports people who face disadvantage or discrimination to have a voice that count. Our vision is of a society in which everyone’s voice, views and hopes can be heard loudly and clearly, in which our rights are understood and respected, and in which each of us is able to lead a full and enjoyable life. We provide a range of professional and statutory advocacy services across England as well as participation and involvement projects working vulnerable adults and young people. Last year, VoiceAbility worked with 18,000 people to have a voice that counts.

Barnardo’s is one of the largest and most renowned charities in the UK, a £258m organisation that delivers over 900 services supporting 200,000 children, young people and their families every year. Barnardo’s vision is that the lives of all children, young people and families should be free from poverty, abuse and discrimination. Our purpose is to help the most vulnerable children and young people transform their lives and fulfil their potential. Our strength is in the diversity of the services we provide, each of which is locally based and addresses local need. Barnardo’s is the leading children’s charity in the UK with regard to the breadth of our service delivery, our research and evidence base that underpins our work and our engagement with policy at government level.

Age UK – is a specialist voluntary organisation and our aim is to provide high quality services and support to the over 50s in the Lincoln City and surrounding areas, ensuring that they get the most from life.

Age UK Lincoln is a local independent charitable organisation and part of the Age UK Federation. You can find details of other Age UKs in your area on the Age UK national website

Our vision – A world in which older people flourish.
Our mission –  To improve lives of older people.

The Total Voice Lincolnshire partners will work closely together, meeting regularly and agreeing joint priorities for the services. Each partner will work to a ‘continuous improvement plan’ and will feedback comments from people who use the services and from professionals about how the service can better meet their needs.

Over the coming months, we’ll be working to raise awareness of the extended advocacy service in Lincolnshire, ensuring that more people have access to independent advocacy, information and advice.
