Voice and Influence Partnership

Have your say on the local issues that matter to you

The Voice and Influence Partnership has been set up to support individuals, groups and communities whose voices aren’t always heard so that they can have a say in shaping Bristol’s future.

The partnership is made up of leading equalities organisations and community champions from across Bristol. By working together we can make sure our diverse communities are part of local decision making.

CfD is working with the Voice and Influence Partnership to make sure that Deaf and Hard of Hearing people are represented in the decisions that affect our lives.
