Coram Voice are the leading providers of specialist advocacy for young care leavers aged 16-25.
We work with care leavers all over the country in order to make sure they know their rights and entitlements and they are being upheld. We also work with a range of different professionals to ensure they are utilising best practice and have up-to-date knowledge when working with care leavers.
Helping young people transition into care leavers
We have a longstanding commitment to providing specialist advocacy that effectively helps young people transition in to independence.
As young people in or around care approach adulthood, they experience many challenges. All too often they don’t get the support they need and miss out on the services they are entitled to. Our Coram Voice Specialist Service Advocacy staff have expert knowledge in guiding care leavers through these difficult areas. Every year we support over 1,000 care leavers and advice and train over 200 advocates and other professionals to create better outcomes for care leavers.
