Our policy

Our goal

All laws and practices that protect, safeguard, and promote the welfare of children should be applied to refugee children and young people.

Our Advocacy Projects

The Children's Society has many projects working with disabled children and young people, some of which provide advocacy services for children and young people. Most of these projects have specialist advocates working with disabled children and young people looked after by local authorities.

Advocacy and the law

The child's right to be heard in matters affecting them is enshrined in Article 12 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child which also stipulates that 'the child shall in particular be provided the opportunity to be heard in any judicial and administrative proceedings affecting the child, either directly, or through a representative or an appropriate body'.
