On Tuesday (27 October 2020) Coram Voice launched a new Specialist Advocacy Service which has been developed to share our best practice approach for advocacy and children’s rights work in a number of specialist areas. Our new service will provide vital consultancy, training and resources to advocates, professionals and organisations who support children and young people who are in care, care leavers, or on the edge of care.
The Specialist Advocacy Service is a team of Coram Voice experts in advocacy and children’s rights work. We are drawing on the organisations long history of providing advocacy in complex and specialist areas of work. The aim of the Specialist Advocacy Service, is to share this knowledge and best practice with the wider sector by providing a range of training, professional information and resources. We will also be offering specific advice through consultations and support on complex issues or an independent view on a specific young person situation.
As part of the launch of the Specialist Advocacy Service, we have launched a number of new online tools for professionals.
