Who are we

About Us

One Voice is a disabled people’s organisation serving Wolverhampton and the surrounding areas.

We are a democratic organisation run by and for disabled people since we began in 1994. 

The disabled people of Wolverhampton elect our Directors and board members, and decide what work we should be doing to help disabled people and to help organisations to improve services and venues for disabled people.

Our aim in all things is to improve the lives and chances of disabled people through working with partners to create change.
