Welcome to the Your Voice Website!
On these pages you will find information about our projects, groups, support services and more. We enable the voice of local people to be heard, and continue to represent the views of local people through the Advisory Network and would encourage everyone with an interest to get involved.
Your Voice Inverclyde Community Care Forum (ICCF) is a not-for-profit organisation set up in 1992. At that time it's main aim was to bring together all the voluntary / community groups to create a collective voice in relation to community care and enable the voice of service users and carers to be heard in the planning and provision of community care services in Inverclyde.
However over the past 24 years we have grown, evolved and developed the Your Voice Network to ensure that the widest range of local people have the opportunity to be involved in community engagement / consultation processes.
Building capacity and the empowerment of local people to influence and inform the planning, development and provision of local services, with a specific focus on individuals and under represented groups who face discrimination and social exclusion, is fundamental to our work.
A significant development over the last year has been our role in facilitating public representation on the newly established Integration Joint Board (IJB). This representation has been drawn from the Health & Social Care Partnership Advisory Group and the associated 11 sub-groups.
We believe the future challenges ahead require fundamental change across public, private and voluntary sectors. We cannot afford to work separately. No one organisation or sector has the solution. We have a long history of working with partners in Inverclyde and influencing positive change. We look forward to working together to enable the voice of local people to be heard in the planning and development of local services and support, to meet local need.
