Advocacy in Barnet
What is Advocacy?
Advocacy means helping you to express your views and making sure that these views are taken seriously.
We will help you find out about your rights, so that you can make up your own mind about what you want to happen
We will help you explain your views and will make sure that people listen to you
We can speak with those who are supporting you, like social workers, teachers or family, to help make sure that you are involved in any plans being made about you
If you want, we can help you to make a complaint and support you through the process
If you would like an Advocate you can ask your Social Worker to refer you, or you can self- refer directly to:
