Family Advocacy

Our family advocacy service was designed with the purpose of ensuring that parents and children who are involved with the local authority have the tools to assist them with protecting their fundamental human right to family life.

An independent family advocate can provide support and information which is frequently not available to them otherwise, so they can make fully informed decisions.

Advocacy also supports the parent to enforce the rights they choose and implement these decisions to ensure family can be supported to stay together.

During some family proceedings the level of stress is so high it can compromise people's abilities to assert their rights, remember instructions or events that occur during this period, or effectively participate in the process of developing their cases. The family advocate provides support to assist the family member with the complicated legal and administrative issues surrounding their lives.

Advocates also provide
the strength and knowledge that parents
in crisis often need.
