About the Organisation
An Advocate is someone who can support you and listen to you if your wishes and feelings are not being heard or if you don’t feel involved in decisions made about you. We can support you to make sure people listen to you and involve you in decisions about you. We can also help you understand your rights.
Things we can support you with
If you are in care or a care leaver we can support you if you don’t feel listened to or if things are changing for you – like moving school or moving placement. We can also support you to get ready for and attend you review meetings. We can support you to go to your review or we can go for you if you want us to. We can also help you if you have an issue that you are unhappy with.
If you are going to a Child Protection Conference you might want an Advocate to support you. We can meet you to talk about what is going to happen and help you understand the meeting. We can support you to have your views heard at the meeting and can either support you to attend or we can go for you.
If you are a young person with a disability we can support you to make a transition. This could be from school to college, from Children’s Services to Adult Services or from college to work.
If you are a young person with an EHC Plan Review Meeting then we can support you. We can help you prepare for adulthood by looking at how to get into work, further education and other activities. We can also support you around independent living and help make sure you have everything you need in your plan.
If you are aged 16 or 17 and are homeless or want to understand your housing options you might want an Advocate. We can support you to understand your options and your rights and can also support you to attend meetings. We can also talk to you about Section 20 and whether this is the right option for you.
If you would like to make a Complaint against Children’s Social Care then you are entitled to an Advocate. We can support you to understand the complaints system, write your complaint, submit your complaint and attend meetings relating to your complaint.
