Advocates are workers who support young people when there is something that they want support in changing about their lives. An Advocate will listen to your thoughts, wishes and feelings and help you to share your ideas with other people.
Shout Out! also offers support in writing letters, filling out forms or making phone calls. Sometimes you may feel embarrassed to say the things you need to say; in that case an Advocate can say them for you, or support you to say them for yourself.
We don’t work for schools, foster carers, parents or social services – we work for you! We also won’t tell anyone what you have talked about unless you ask us to. If you fall into one of the above groups, why not contact us and help us to help you get listened to!
