We work with young people aged between seven and 19 years old who have disabilities, special educational needs and are looked after. We support with Looked After Children Reviews, supporting the young person to prepare for their review and supporting afterwards, as well as facilitating advocacy drop ins.

We can help make sure that the young people we support are getting the right support to:

  • Be healthy
  • Stay safe
  • Enjoy life and achieve
  • Make a positive contribution
  • Achieve economic wellbeing

We can also help the young people we support to have their views and wishes heard:

  • At reviews and meetings
  • At school or college
  • When there are changes in their life
  • If they don’t feel safe

How do I get support from an advocate?

Young people can refer themselves to the service or speak to the advocate during a regular drop in. They can also be referred by a third party. We can support individuals to have their voice heard or work with groups of young people to raise issues they have identified. However, parental or carer consent is required before an advocate can work with a young person if they are under 18 years old.

To find out more about this service or to make a referral you can call our Help Hub on 0300 456 2370 or email [email protected]
