An advocacy service for children and young people in Dudley, Sandwell, Wolverhampton and Walsall.

Black Country Advocacy

We provide advice and support for children and young people who are in the care system and need to talk to someone independent from the council or children's services. 

Who is the service available to?

We offer confidential advocacy services for children and young people up to the age of 25 who are in care, leaving care or who have a social worker. We also offer advocacy services for disabled children and disabled looked after young people.

What support does the service provide?

Our service provides one-to-one sessions with an advocate who will:

  • Help you sort out a problem or worry in ways that are comfortable for you
  • Listen carefully to you and help you understand your rights
  • Ensure your rights are respected and you are treated fairly
  • Help you get your views and feelings across.
  • Give you a voice in decisions that affect your life

'I appreciate all your help and reassurance you gave me when I was in doubt of winning this case. I’m glad I went down this route' - young person
