Description of the service

Our advocates support children and young people to: 


  • Have their voices heard
  • Express their views in the decision-making process
  • Understand their rights
  • Make a complaint 

Our advocates are instructed by the child or young person, and express their views, not ours. Information children and young people tell our advocates is confidential unless they or another person is at risk.


We can support a Havering young person if they are:

  • Under 18 
  • Living in care in or out of borough
  • Leaving care
  • A Child in Need
