People First Bridgend has a self-advocacy group called the Advisory Team.

A self-advocacy group is where people speak up about their rights or about a cause like equality.

Our advisory team is made up of people with learning disabilities from Bridgend County.

The Advisory Team speaks up about issues that affect people with learning disabilities, like the right to vote and what services they need from the council.

These issues can be about Bridgend, the Cwm Taf Morgannwg region or the whole of Wales.

People First Bridgend train the Advisory Team about self-advocacy and how to speak up for themselves.

This makes people feel more confident to use their voice and have more control in their lives.
