Children’s & Adult Advocacy Services

We have an understanding of the legal framework and can provide advice and guidance regarding the process of Children’s Services and public law proceedings.

Our aim is to support families to understand the complexities of Children’ Services and empower families to have more say in and control of the decisions made about their child/children.

In recent years local government policy (Children Act 2004) has shifted towards addressing service provisions through working together with children, parents and agencies. Advocacy is based on the assumption that all individuals have rights and that all individuals, including children, have ways of expressing themselves. We believe that everyone should have an equal opportunity to be respected and heard.
