My local advocacy service

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – Advocates can still help young people with advice and advocacy support during the Coronavirus outbreak. Your advocate should be able to meet you in person (if it’s safe to do this) and should also be able to support you using the phone, email  or video and  messaging apps.

You can find the Advocacy service who should help you by using the finder below. 

Just type in the name of the local authority who looks after you or supports you as a care leaver and the name and telephone number of who to contact will come up.  

If your advocacy service is not in the same area that you live, it will be where your social worker’s office is. It doesn’t matter if you don’t live in the area – you should still get the support from that advocacy service.

I still need help

If you have any problem getting an advocate just get in touch with our Always Heard advocacy helpline on 0808 800 5792 or email We will make sure you get an advocate.
