Wakefield CAPS
(Children's Advocacy and Participation Service)

Contact us

Getting in touch couldn't be easier – there are no forms to complete for Advocacy support just ring the CAPS Team. We will take the details of what support is requested and a worker will arrange to come out and visit the young person. We take referral from professionals and carers but we prefer young people to get in touch directly because we think they are their own experts and know what support they need better than anyone else.

Our contact details
