North Wales Advocacy Service

How can we help?

What services we have to offer

We are Independent Professional Advocates who are here to listen to you and support you to make sure your voice is heard! This is how we can help…

What is Advocacy?

Advocacy is about having someone to listen to you. It can help you to tell the people who make decisions about your life what you think and how you feel.

Please see our leaflet for more information >

Advocacy can help you to:

  • get your voice heard
  • know and understand your rights
  • take part in meetings and reviews
  • sort things out with your social worker or carer
  • make a complaint.

Our advocacy service is independent – we are not part of Social Services. We work with children and young people who are Looked After, in Need of Care and Support (including children and young people on the Child Protection Register) and Care Leavers.

How do I get in touch?

Children and young people – you can call the free phone number (below) and ask for an advocate – it’s that easy – no forms required!

We also have an Independent Visitor Service for children and young people who are in care but and who have no or very limited contact with their family. For more information please contact our Independent Visitor Coordinator on the office number below.
