Intervoice was first established in 2007 with the aim of providing administrative support and co-ordination to the rapidly growing number of national Hearing Voices Networks. Formally registered as an English charity in 2013, our remit is now to support the development of the International Hearing Voices Movement. Whilst our focus has shifted and become more humble, some aspects of our work remain the same.
As you will see from the timeline below, Intervoice – like the International Hearing Voices Movement it supports – has always been a collaboration between experts by experience (voice-hearers and those with related experiences) and allies (including professionals, family/friends, academics and journalists).
The International Hearing Voices Movement exists because of the hard work, dedication and courage of so many people and groups beyond Intervoice. The timeline below tells some of our story as an organisation, but if you want to find out more about the wider picture – please see our page on the movement itself.
