What was myVoice?

The myVoice project brought together young autistic people aged 16-25 as youth consultants, content creators and online facilitators. The three-year project funded by the Department of Health was aimed at connecting autistic young people with other young adults with autism and giving them a say in their local communities.

What did myVoice achieve? 

We worked in four London areas to help improve the kinds of local services that autistic people use in their every day lives - from health centres to colleges, libraries and youth clubs. Our youth consultants were trained on how to review and give feedback on the quality of local services and worked with local councils to make improvements.

The volunteers created content such as blogs and videos, about a range of different areas in life and how to tackle them. They wanted to share their experiences with others in order to help them navigate the world. They also hosted online chats where young people could share their tips and advice with others.

Where can I find myVoice content?

Although the project is now finished, the content produced is still useful for autistic young people. We have pulled together our favourite pieces on a variety of topics.
