Change through Advocacy is back again for 2023! This year, children, young people, advocates, and the Article 39 team will be creating a magazine exploring what is needed for children’s advocacy to be the best it can be.
What is Change through Advocacy?
Change through Advocacy is an annual magazine all about raising awareness and championing independent advocacy for children and young people in England. The project brings together children, young people, advocates, and the Article 39 team.
You can take a look at last year’s magazine HERE.
Who can take part in this year’s project?
We would love you to join us in this years Change through Advocacy if:
- You are aged 25 years or under; and
- You have experience of:
- Being helped by an advocate; or
- Being in care; or
- Living in an institutional setting like a mental health unit or prison.
You do not need to have done anything like this before. We welcome all children and young people who want to share your thoughts and ideas about how advocacy for children and young people can be the best it can be.
Whether you are shy and quiet or bubbly and chatty – you are welcome to join the project and we will always respect and value you just as you are!
