Independent advocates provide vital information and support to children and young people – making sure their voices are heard and their rights upheld.
Our Children and Young People’s Advocates Network was established in 2018 to provide connection and mutual support for independent advocates working with children and young people (up to 25 years) across different settings.
We started with an email group, then ran two regional events in 2019, in Manchester and London. We are extremely grateful to Slater and Gordon Lawyers for hosting the Manchester event; and to Matrix Chambers for hosting the London one. Now we have over 100 members working across all parts of England.
