Safeguarding children in care through advocacy

Why Some children continue to be abused or neglected after they are removed from their families and placed in care. Many children in care cannot speak out about their experience in the care system, for example if they have suffered abuse.

About the programme

The NSPCC has developed this programme to make sure all children in care have someone who can stand up for them. That person will act as an independent champion, making sure their views are heard, advocating on their behalf and ensuring they are protected.

The NSPCC works with partner organisations in Warrington and St Helens to provide advocacy services for children in care. Our work identifies the best practice and demonstrates how advocacy can best contribute to improve safeguarding.

We work with local authorities and specialist organisations who work with children with disabilities and separated and refugee children. The service provides independent, professional advocacy services by trained staff to help give a ‘voice’ to children in care extending access to advocacy services for some of the most vulnerable children and young people.
