Shropshire County Council has contracted Coram Voice to provide them with a Children’s Rights Service, which has two distinct parts: Advocacy and Independent Visiting.
Advocacy: We offer an advocacy service to all children in care, care leavers and to those children who are subject to Child Protection Procedures.
Advocates are champions of children’s rights and will ensure that the wishes and feelings of each child we work with are at the forefront of any decisions affecting their lives.
We provide skilled advocates who are trained to help children and young people express their wishes and feelings. This could be when they:
• Want support at reviews and other meetings.
• Disagree about plans being made.
• Have concerns about their care.
• Need to make a complaint.
The advocacy service is about empowering children and young people to ensure their views are heard and acted upon by decision makers and to help children and young people to navigate and negotiate the child care system.
