This month Raising Our Voices is bought to you again by VATT Chat. A peer led initiative to make sure everyone can participate in meetings and places where decisions are made. 

In this episode we're talking about making information accessible.

Michael Mayne tells us all about Voices For Justice a program that supports people with disability and lived experience of the criminal justice system to be self-advocates. Sue Smith also joins us to remember Doug Pentland, and Justin O'Brien brings us Justin Jokes.

VATT (Voice at The Table) is a SARU initiative providing practical information to ensure people with a cognitive disability have a real and equal voice on boards, committees and advisory groups. 

The VATT Chat podcast has been made as part of SARU’s Inclusive Meeting Training package. It is for Self Advocates, Organisation staff and Meeting Chairs.
