Coram Voice works with a diverse range of younger children (aged 11 and below), who are in or around care, in a wide range of settings. We help them understand the complexities of the situation they are in and make sure they are heard in decisions made about them.
Our work with young children in and around care
Working with young age groups provides a range of different challenges. We have developed specialist approaches to help them engage with advocacy, understand their rights and the have a voice in decision being made about their care.
Work we have produced includes AdvoCat, our advocacy champion for children. AdvoCat helps raise younger children’s awareness of the role of the advocate and how they can help children navigate the care system and ensure that their views and rights are taken into account by decision makers.
