Are you being listened to?

We provide advocacy for children and young people in Nottinghamshire. An Advocate is a person who can act as a spokesperson for you.

An Advocate can help you

  • Be listened to and be heard
  • Be treated fairly
  • Have a voice in decisions made about your life, the services you receive, and the quality of these services
  • Share your concerns about your circumstances or if you need to make a complaint
  • Participate in or represent your voice in meetings

Who can have an Advocate?

An Advocate is independent – this means they are not part of other services such as social care, education, or health. An Advocate will not give their opinion or tell you what to do.

We provide Advocates for:

  • Young people from age 8 who are looked after by Nottinghamshire County Council
  • Young People with complex needs or disabilities
  • 16- and 17-year olds who are homeless
