Children and Young People’s Advocacy

by Partners In Advocacy Claimed ( Independent Advocacy, Additional Support Needs )

Advocacy is about sticking up for people who are at risk of being excluded, ignored or mistreated. It’s about helping people to find out about options, make choices and tell other people what they want to happen. It’s about making sure that people are fully involved in decisions that affect their lives – and that other people listen to them and take their views into account.

Service available in Edinburgh for people who are:
5-19 years old with an additional support need (not including looked after children) in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
12 – 15 years old who wish to challenge decisions being made by education authorities across Scotland.
