InDEPENDENT Advocacy Support


An advocate's job is to help a young person to share their thoughts, feelings, needs and wants.

Sometimes young people struggle to express themselves and find it helpful to have independent advocacy support to do this effectively. A young person might need advocacy support to:

  • Communicate with a parent or carer about a difficulty that they are experiencing.
  • Speak to their school or college about additional learning support that they need.
  • Meet with their social worker to discuss their support package.
  • Attend a multi agency meeting and express their own point of view.
