Child Protection Advocacy

Child Protection Advocacy

We offer advocacy support to disabled people who are going through child protection processes. That means we work with:

  • People with physical disabilities

  • People with learning difficulties and disabilities

  • People with mental health needs

  • People who are neurodivergent

  • People who are deaf

who have involvement from children’s services. We can work with from the Early Help stage through to Public Law Outline. Please note that we are not able to support clients at court and we are not able to support post-court (e.g. at ongoing LAC reviews) if the child/ren have been removed and there is no plan for reunification.

We offer practical support throughout the process. We attend meetings alongside our clients and advocate for their needs to be met as well as those of their children, perhaps by making sure they have access to social care.

An Advocate Can: 

  • Represent your views and wishes if you find it hard to communicate

  • Help you to make an informed choice and come up with a plan of action

  • Attend meetings and help you to understand what is said

  • Help you to understand important documents

  • Be non-judgemental and respectful to you

An Advocate Cannot:

  • Be a support worker – they can only support you around a specific issue

  • Make decisions for you, or tell you what to do

  • Automatically get you the outcome you want

  • Do things for you

  • Respond to a crisis situation
