Many children who are looked after in care or who are in the child protection system are not consulted about matters affecting their lives. Choices are made for them, often without their consent.
We provide these children with independent advocates and are developing advocacy and participation practices across all areas of work to ensure that more children have a say in important decisions that are made about their lives.
For young people in care or who have a social worker, we help make sure their voices are heard and that they have a say in their future.
Black Country Advocacy Service provides services to children and young people who are in care, leaving care or who have a social worker.
The Children's Society in Cheshire and Warrington provides advocacy and independent visitor services.
The Children’s Society in Lancashire works predominantly with children and young people who are looked after by Lancashire County Council.
We support young people who are cared for by the local council or who have a social worker to be listened to and have a say in their own future.
